Severn Hospice is selling Forget Me Not flowers to help raise funds this Christmas.
The bespoke flowers, which have been crafted by Oswestry based British Ironworks Centre, are shaped from iron and glazed with beautiful forget me not blue, before being mounted on a slim but sturdy iron pole.
Each flower measures 17cm in diameter and 43cm in length and is packaged in a beautiful presentation box. The flowers can be purchased online and are available for delivery or collection, as well as being available in all Severn Hospice shops.
Severn Hospice Legacy and In Memoriam Advisor Elodie Home said: “Our Forget Me Not flowers will make a perfect gift this Christmas and are a fantastic way to support our hospice at this special time of year.
“Our Forget Me Not flowers have already raised an incredible £80,000 for our hospice and the sale of just one flower funds two hours of nursing care for one of our patients. We need to raise £7 million each year to fund our care and by giving a Forget Me Not flower this Christmas you will be helping us to support the families that need us in Shropshire and Mid Wales.”
Severn Hospice gives specialist care and support free of charge to families across Shropshire and Mid Wales who are living with an incurable illness. Since 1989, it has given free care and support to more than 27,000 patients and their loved ones during their time of greatest need. They now help more than 2,800 local people every year.
Severn Hospice Forget Me Not flowers, priced £25 each, are available to purchase in all Severn Hospice shops and at both hospice sites in Telford and Shrewsbury. Alternatively, flowers can be purchased via the charity’s website at www.severnhospice.org.uk/forgetmenot.
