City Hospice has teamed up with Timpson to provide a special touch to this year’s Forever Flowers campaign.
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 striking display within the grounds of Cardiff Castle from Saturday July 30 to Sunday August 14.
The flowers will be available to collect during the final two days of the display and following the event. Supporters will be able to have their Forever Flower engraved after the display at a significantly reduced cost at participating Timpson stores on St Mary Street, Cardiff and Culverhouse Cross.
Timpson was founded in 1865 by William Timpson in Manchester. Initially selling shoes, it later expanded into shoe manufacturing in 1884 and repairs in 1903. By 1960, Timpson had opened 260 shoe repair shops.
The company later introduced key cutting in the 1960s and then launched many other services such as engraving, watch repairs, dry cleaning and photo processing over the next few decades. Today, there are more than 2000 stores of the family run business across the UK.
Daniel Phelan, Mobile Manager at Timpson, said: “City Hospice helps care for people with serious illnesses and medical conditions such as cancer, dementia, motor neurone disease and other life limiting illnesses. It doesn’t look or feel like the typical hospice; the centre is bright and welcoming, and their patients can live out the rest of their lives at home with the care and support of the hospice team.
“I am delighted that Timpson is helping the Forever Flowers campaign. I think it’s a touching sentiment for people to remember those they love who have sadly passed. It will be lovely for people to be able to go to the castle and see the flowers displayed, and be able to pick one which will represent their loved one, then have it engraved with their name as well.”
