Celebrate life and those we cherish with a City Hospice Remember Me Rose

City Hospice’s Forever Flowers provides an opportunity for our community to celebrate and remember the lives of our loved ones.

Our award-winning campaign returns for a fourth year and we invite you to remember someone special this summer at one of Cardiff’s most iconic locations, Cardiff Castle



Remember Me Rose

This year's choice of flower symbolises love, affection and respect, while the colour also pays tribute to our Ruby anniversary.

Purchase your flower

A stunning display within the grounds of Cardiff Castle

Expertly crafted by the British Ironwork Centre, over a thousand beautiful metal roses will feature in a stunning display within the grounds of Cardiff Castle from Saturday 3rd - Sunday 11th August. Your limited edition Remember Me Rose will be a part of this special display in memory of someone you love. During the final two days of the display, you will be welcome to take away your flower and place it in a space that's special to you.

Add a special touch to your Forever Flower

We are delighted to welcome back our partnership with Timpson in which you can have the opportunity to have your Forever Flower engraved following the display at a significantly reduced cost. Following the event you can take your rose to participating Timpson stores (see FAQs below) and have it engraved.

If you've already bought a flower but now want to add an engraving, get in touch with us via fundraising@cityhospice.org.uk

Purchasing a ‘Remember Me Rose’ will support the work of City Hospice, the only provider of home-based specialist palliative care in Cardiff. By getting involved with Forever Flowers, people will not only be celebrating the lives of their family, friends and colleagues but will also be supporting our work in the community and enable us to continue caring for Cardiff for another forty years.

Forever Flowers is for everyone, not just those who were cared for by City Hospice. It provides the opportunity for people to talk about their grief, reflect, remember a loved one and celebrate life with a lasting tribute.
