Celebrate and remember the life of a loved one this with a Snowdrop.

Remember someone special to you with a beautiful commemorative snowdrop. Each flower has been hand-crafted by the British Ironwork Centre for St Helena Hospice and was used to create a stunning visual display of memories at Beth Chatto Gardens.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Snowdrop Display between 14th and 16th February, we were delighted to see such a brilliant response from our local community. If you missed the display you can see the full photo album on Facebook or check out the video below.

Although the display is now over there are still a limited number of Snowdrops available for a donation, but once they're gone, they are gone, so don't miss your opportunity to have your very own piece of this incredible display.

The remaining Snowdrops available for a suggested donation of £30 to St Helena Hospice, which could help a child dealing with the death of a parent to work with the Bereavement team to channel their feelings with activities such as decorating a flowerpot and planting their own snowdrops.

You can collect your Snowdrop from our Fundraising Office, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. 

St Helena Hospice Fundraising Office address: Unit 1 The Atrium, Phoenix Square, Wyncolls Road, Colchester CO4 9AS.

Please note: You will need to bring your confirmation letter with you when collecting your Snowdrop/s. If you don’t receive a letter, please contact Fundraising.

Lauren will be dedicating a snowdrop for her mum Shelley, who died at The Hospice age 45 when Lauren was 16.

“We did so many activities together which was amazing and they were all made available because we were supported by The Hospice. My mum and I made heart-shaped fake flower arrangements together and to do that with my mum was incredible. I got to keep them and it was great my mum was able to do that for us."

Full terms and conditions are available here. If you would like any more information about the Snowdrop appeal please contact the Fundraising team on 01206 931 468 or by email at
