Van Hage, Great Amwell, SG12 9RP3pm 

Isabel Hospice Forget Me Not Celebration!

You are invited to join us to remember your loved ones and reflect on the happy memories you shared with beautiful handcrafted metal forget-me-not flowers.

Please join us on Saturday 15th June at 3pm at Van Hage Garden Centre to view the stunning art installation of forget-me-not flowers. You can dedicate in memory of anyone special to you, a family member or a friend, and it doesn’t matter if they were not cared for by Isabel Hospice. 

This year, following conversations with our amazing supporters, we have changed our Garden of Memories remembrance ceremony. The Forget-Me-Not Celebration will still provide an opportunity for you and your family to remember your loved one in a special remembrance ceremony at the Van Hage Garden Centre in Great Amwell, but it will also mean that you can take home a beautiful handcrafted Forget-Me-Not flower that you can place in your garden at home as a lasting tribute for many years to come. 

You can dedicate one of the striking flowers for a suggested donation of £35. Each flower, measuring 17cm in diameter and 43cm in length, has been custom made by the British Ironwork Centre and after the ceremony you are invited to collect your custom made flower to take home and place in your own garden as a lasting tribute for many years to come. 

We are creating a digital memory garden and would love to see your dedication at home. Once you have placed your forget-me-not in your own garden, please share your memories with us. Just take a photograph of your flower and post it on social media using the hashtag #IsabelForgetMeNot you can include pictures and stories of your loved one. 

Dedicate online at isabelhospice.org.uk/forgetmenotwall - Or if you would prefer to make your dedication over the phone on, please call: 01707 382536.

Cornish Coastal Challenge

North Coast, Cornwall, TR1 1UH8am

 

Join team Isabel beside the seaside for the fantastic Cornish Coastal Challenge to raise vital funds for the Hospice!


This beautiful weekend trek follows the dramatic coastline of north Cornwall. The landscapes are spectacular with rugged cliffs, hidden coves and old fishing villages forming a stunning backdrop to the blue sea.

Starting at Harlyn Bay, West Padstow, we walk for 24 hilly miles in 2 days, to St Agnes Head – a challenging distance with varying uphill climbs and rough terrain. We pass the well-known beach stacks of Beruthan Steps, as well as old reminders of Cornwalls mining heritage, while Poldark fans will recognise some key filming locations such as Hollywell Bay, with the much-filmed Gull Rocks off-shore.

Accommodation will be in a well-located youth hostel. Rooms are dorm-style (single-sex). All bedding is provided. (Please ensure you let us know of any sharing requests

Registration costs £80 with a £600 minimum sponsorship.

Do spread the word and invite friends and family to join you on what will be a fantastic challenge! Contact Megan on 01707 382544 or by email

Walk for Jakey

Hampsted Lane, Jcn of East Heath Road, NW3 7JP, London8.30am 

Join us and 'Walk for Jakey' on Saturday 30th June through Hamstead Heath in memory of David Jacob and in aid of Isabel Hospice. 

This walk has been organised by the friends of David Jacob, who sadly passed away in our care last year. It's taking place on 30th June as this would have been David’s birthday. Please come along for a leisurely walk through Hamstead Heath in aid of Isabel Hospice, followed by some lunch and time to recall fond memories of Jakey with his friends and family.  

Chris and Roy said: 
"During his last days David and his family were so grateful for the support they received from Isabel Hospice, so it is only fitting we combine our upcoming walk in his memory with a concerted effort to help raise funds in order that the Hospice can carry on their work for others.

It really is a win win situation, we get to smile as we recollect and rejoice his wonderful and influential life and the Hospice gets to continue to help others, so that they too can be made as comfortable as possible in their final days.

It costs about £720 a day for the Hospice to operate their 'Hospice at Home' service, allowing carers to visit people in their own home and surroundings, providing specialist knowledge, comfort and expert advice."

 

For more info, please email Chris, chris.camwell@lwb.org.au , or Roy, reyoung71@btinternet.com . We hope you can make it! But if you can't and wish to donate please visit their Just Giving page. You can also keep in touch about more information, updates and memories of David and the upcoming walk at our Facebook page.
