Forget Me Not Campaign
Ironworks to Help Raise an Additional One Million Pounds for National Hospices

 

Our aim is to help as many hospices across the UK as we possibly can to achieve a national total of one million pounds. In 2018, we enabled a total of five hospices to achieve a whopping £179K through various Forget Me Not campaigns. In 2019, as part of our National Hospice Support Programme, we are hoping to triple our efforts towards reaching the million mark.

The programme initially started right here in Shropshire with Severn Hospice, where we offered a helping hand in the form of metal Forget Me Not flowers. Inspired by the colours representing the Hospice’s branding and logo, these flowers became available for sale at the Hospice where each and every cent raised from the donations went straight back into helping the hospice achieve their goals. We are completely inspired by the extreme dedication evidenced through the work that Hospices do, which is why be believe so strongly in helping them to raise the vital funds necessary for their cause.

The concept of the Forget Me Nots creation carries so much more weight than just raising crucial funds. Each flower pays a special homage to a lost loved one, immortalising their legacy in a heartfelt and very beautiful way. Since, the same idea has expanded across the country allowing us to support several other hospices in the same way. With the likes of St Luke’s, St Mary’s and St Gemma’s all benefitting from our metal support, we hope to be able to offer the same level of help for many other Hospices this year.

We are so proud to be playing a part in raising these funds for such an extraordinary cause, and we love seeing all of the joy that the flowers bring to the staff, patients and families involved. We can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!
