Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice is inviting people to join a city-wide tribute to celebrate the lives of loved ones who are no longer with us.
The hospice is encouraging people across the city to take part by securing one of its limited edition, intricately crafted flowers to celebrate the lives of their loved ones.
From April 24 to May 1, Brindleyplaces’ central square will play host to the striking installation that features 1,500 iron flowers as part of its latest appeal. Each one devoted to the memory of loved ones lost. By making a donation the public can secure their own flower which will become part of the display, they will then be able to keep their flower after the one-week installation has ended.
Each flower supports funding towards the valuable work at Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice, enabling the vital care and support to local families living with terminal illness.
Created by the Midlands-based British Ironworks Centre, each flower will be devoted to the memory of loved ones lost and by making a donation the public can secure their own flower which will become part of the display, they will then be able to keep their flower after the one-week installation has ended.
Familiar faces from across the city are also taking part in the appeal; local radio personality Llewela Bailey, as well as West Bromwich footballing legend Brendan Batson are both taking part in the installation, dedicating their flowers to honour the memory of their partners, both cared for by Hospice staff before they passed away.
