Dedicate a flower in memory of someone you love

Each year, a beautiful wildflower meadow is sown in the gardens of the hospice to celebrate the lives of the people we love dearly and miss deeply.

We invite you to dedicate a flower in our meadow, as an inspirational way of remembering and celebrating an adored person in your life. The seed for your flower will then be planted in our Meadow of Memories, and by July it will be in full bloom.

How your dedication will blossom

When creating your dedication, you are invited to make a donation to support people with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon. Your donation will make such a difference in helping us to care for people at a time when they need us most, enabling families to make every day the best day possible and to create special memories together.

£16 will buy a special memory box – to help families capture and cherish the memory of their loved one.

£30 will pay for a bereavement support session for a family member or carer, at a time when they need support the most.

£72 will cover the hourly cost of running the entire Hospice at Home service – caring for patients at home in their last two weeks of life and helping them to make the most of precious last moments with their loved ones.

£169 will fund a home visit from our Community Team, ensuring that families are given all the advice and support they need.

Meadow of Memories online celebration

On Sunday 11 July, we’d love you to join our Meadow of Memories virtual celebration – where we as a community will come together online to honour and remember the special people who we love and miss whole-heartedly.

This virtual celebration can be viewed here on this web page, and will provide a wonderful opportunity to listen to poignant readings, poems and restful music, and to reflect on precious memories.

The celebration is open to all, so please do tell all your friends, family and neighbours about it.

If restrictions allow, we may also hold a celebration event at the meadow itself. If you’d like to register your interest for this event, then please email inmemory@rowcrofthospice.org.uk and we’ll keep you updated.

 

Our Sponsor

Thank you to our generous sponsor Katie Mills Independent Funeral Service for contributing towards the cost of putting on Meadow of Memories 2021, which enables Rowcroft Hospice to ensure that the majority of funds raised by the event goes to fund patient care.

Visiting the meadow

If you’d like to visit the meadow, we’d love you to do so at any time. The best time to see the meadow in its full glory is between May and July. It is the most soothing place to sit and reflect on happy times gone by with special people.
