Edinburgh Hospice Launches Tribute Funds

Edinburgh Hospice Columba’s has launched a new way for people to raise money in memory of loved ones who died at the hospice – Tribute Funds.

To accompany the Tribute Funds, St Columba’s Hospice has installed 800 ceramic forget-me-not flowers in to its courtyard garden where patients, families, staff, volunteers and visitors can view and admire the garden. The Tribute Garden is a poignant and powerful display that will remain in place for many years to come.

A delicate copper leaf will be added to the flower

Each Tribute Fund will be represented by a ceramic flower in the Tribute Garden, and when the first donation is made to the Tribute Fund, a delicate copper leaf will be added to the flower with an engraved message.

The ceramic flowers have been specially handcrafted by Johnson’s Tiles, who also produced the Tower of London poppy display. Each flower has been handmade, and carefully glazed with three layers of paint to ensure the flowers can brave Edinburgh’s weather.

A special and personal way to support the hospice

“Tribute Funds are a special and personal way for people to support the work of the hospice,” said Jackie Husband, chief executive of St Columba’s Hospice.

“By setting up a Tribute Fund, our supporters can ensure the high standards of care their loved one received will be available for other families and generations to come.”
