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

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

Watch our video to see Robbie's dedication to his wife Jan on the Celebration Tree and listen to what it means to him to be able to see the rose at the hospice.

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.

As well as providing you with an opportunity to celebrate happy memories, every engraved leaf and rose will support specialist end-of-life care across our local community.

Leaf options (up to 28 characters per dedication)

  • Bronze leaf: £10 per month or £120 per year
  • Silver leaf: £20 per month or £240 per year
  • Gold leaf: £30 per month or £360 per year
