We are delighted to have been able to purchase a much needed item for the Hospice to meet the needs of many people who ask us for a way to remember a family member or a friend after they have passed away. Until now, apart from a period of time at Christmas with the Light up a Life service, we have been unable to meet the needs of the people who would like a way to remember in a place they can visit regularly.
It was decided that as we have beautiful gardens which are both secure and tranquil, that we would purchase a copper tree sculpted by hand by an artist from Kent with leaves which can be engraved with a message and the name of the person to be remembered. This tree will change colour with exposure to the seasons and will make a beautiful natural feature in the gardens.
To put a leaf on this tree will cost £100 a year and at the end of that period the leaf will be removed from the tree, cleaned and returned to the donor in a beautiful presentation box to keep forever. If you wish for the leaf to remain on the tree this can be achieved at an additional annual cost.
The leaves are large and designed to be put on the tree where the design will allow them to blow in the wind giving a beautiful sound effect as well as an amazing feature. The tree will be located in an area of the garden where it can be visited any time during the day.

One of the biggest changes to data Privacy law comes into effect
on the 25th May 2018. The General Data Protection
Regulation also known as GDPR means that as individuals we will all
have more control as to how our personal data is used. Also it
ensures that organisations such as Les Bourgs Hospice put robust
systems in place to meet the requirements of the regulation.
Therefore we will in due course be publishing on our website and in
all the information we provide a privacy notice reflecting what we
do with personal data, how it is used and your rights as
individuals under the new law.
