City Hospice has once again teamed up with Timpson to provide a special touch to Forever Flowers.

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 3 August to Sunday 11 August.

This year’s Forever Flower is a rose for which symbolises love, affection and respect, while the colour also pays tribute to the charity which is marking its ruby anniversary this year.

The flowers will be available to collect during the final two days of the display. 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, Culverhouse Cross and Asda Coryton, Cardiff.

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.

Timpson supports Forever Flowers 2024Daniel Phelan, Mobile Manager at Timpson, said:

“Timpson is proud to support City Hospice’s Forever Flowers campaign for a third year. After learning more about City Hospice’s work from previous campaigns, we were deeply moved by the charity’s impact on the community. We are delighted to offer supporters a special edition engraved tag as an addition to their flower to remember a loved one. Seeing Cardiff Castle covered in a sea of daisies last year was beautiful. We can’t wait to see the roses bloom across the castle this year and encourage everyone to get involved and support this wonderful cause.”
