Llanishen High School will be ‘wearing something yellow or something bright’ to raise money to purchase Forever Flowers.
Llanishen High School has supported City Hospice for many years, from raising over £6,000 by taking part in 100 Heroes Challenge to hosting Christmas jumper days in school. This time, the school are running a ‘Wear something yellow or something bright day’ in support of our Forever Flowers campaign. All students will donate £1 and wear something bright instead of their school uniform.
With the money raised, they will be purchasing some Forever Flowers to be displayed in their polytunnel.
We spoke with Mr Andrew Mee who kindly shared the school’s story:
“The school have worked to support City Hospice for the last few years, recognizing the great work they do for families in our community. Many students and staff members have been supported by the wonderful staff at City Hospice, so it is a place that is dear to the hearts of many people in our school community.
Forever Flowers allows all members of our school community to reflect and remember loved ones who have passed away. Wearing something bright allows us to remember the brightness in those who are no longer with us. The campaign also gives us the opportunity to remember students who have also, sadly, passed away and remember the brightness that they exuded whilst in LHS.
We are looking forward to seeing the bright array of colours and the wide smiles of our students as they remember the brightness of loved ones who are no longer with us. Two of the flowers will be displayed as lasting remembrances of Taj and Ana, students who sadly, passed away whilst studying at the school”
Mr Andrew Mee visited us with some pupils at the hospice and created a video supporting our Forever Flowers
Daisy Magill, Senior Fundraising Coordinator said:
“We would like to take this opportunity to say a special thank you to Llanishen High for their continued support, we are so very grateful. Purchasing Forever Flowers in memory of students who have sadly passed away is so moving. It’s such a special way to pay tribute and cherish their memory”.
