City Hospice’s Forever Flowers campaign has returned for its third consecutive year and will be held this summer in association with Cardiff Bereavement Services.
Forever Flowers provides the public with a unique means to celebrate life and remember cherished family members, friends, colleagues and loved ones. The limited-edition tributes will feature in a special display within the grounds of Cardiff Castle from Saturday 5 August to Sunday 13 August.
This year’s Forever Flower is a daisy which for many symbolises love, hope and new dawns and the charity is inviting people to dedicate a daisy to remember a loved one.
Cardiff Bereavement Services is part of Cardiff Council. In addition to operating Cardiff Crematorium at Thornhill and eight cemeteries in the city, the service’s experienced staff provide free, impartial advice on all matters relating to funerals, funeral arrangements and memorials.
The service is run by a sympathetic and professional team who understand that the loss of a loved one is hard to accept and that help with decisions at such a difficult and emotional time is greatly needed and appreciated.
Speaking about the service’s support for the campaign, Councillor Dan De’Ath, Cabinet Member for Bereavement Services, said: “It is so important for people to be able to remember loved ones and for people to be able to grieve in a healthy way. This is an extremely positive campaign that the Council through its Bereavement Services team are delighted to support.”
Liz Booyse, Chief Executive of City Hospice, said: “We are delighted that this year’s Forever Flowers campaign is being held in association with Cardiff Bereavement Services. Their team understand the complexity and challenges of grief and bereavement and why campaigns like Forever Flowers are so important to the community.”
