Celebrate the life of a loved one with a dedication on our beautiful new rose tree

We are delighted to introduce our new Celebration Tree, which takes pride of place close to the reception area at Katharine House. The specially commissioned rose tree celebrates the lives of loved ones and can also mark special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries. The tree is also a beautiful piece of artwork that hospice visitors can enjoy.

Watch it being built at speed on our Celebration Tree video, which is just over 1 minute long.

Leaves can be engraved with a name or a date and are available in three colour options: bronze, silver and gold. Copper coloured roses are also available for longer dedications. Your leaf or rose will stay on our Celebration Tree for a year after which time you will be offered the opportunity to renew your leaf or rose for another year, or for it to be sent to you as a special keepsake.

Every leaf and rose on the Celebration Tree will help provide specialist end-of-life care to patients and their families across our local community.
