Tree of Life

Celebrate your loved one’s life  

Your donation for a personalised leaf is a beautiful and lasting tribute to their memory

Our handcrafted Tree of Life stands within its own Peace Garden at Willen Hospice. Whether you have been supported by Willen Hospice or elsewhere, when you dedicate a leaf on our Tree of Life, you'll be creating a special and poignant way to remember your loved one.

Each leaf is beautifully personalised with an engraved message of your choice, either a memorable date, a name or an uplifting message. You are invited to add a small ribbon of your choice to easily identify your leaf.

You'll be invited to hang your leaf on our Tree of Life and are always welcome to visit our Peace Garden for a time of quiet reflection or for your friends and family to mark memorable occasions like birthdays or anniversaries.

Tree of Life

Our Tree of Life and leaves have been handcrafted by local artist and blacksmith, Will Jones, who is based in Great Horwood. He has worked in collaboration with a local retired landscape architect, Brian Mitchell, who is developing the Peace Garden at the Hospice.

By dedicating a leaf, you will be helping Willen Hospice to support people in the community who are facing life limiting illnesses.

Option 1 is a one-off donation per leaf of £129 per year.
After a year you can decide if you wish to keep donating to keep your leaf on the Tree of Life or if you wish to take it home.

Option 2 is a minimum donation of £30 per leaf to secure it plus a monthly suggested donation of £9 or more on direct debit.

You can do all of this online below. Alternatively, call Emilia or Lisa who will happily talk you through the options, discuss the messages on the engraving and set you up. They are on 01908 303074.

If you would like to go ahead and dedicate a leaf on our Tree of Life:

  • Decide on your method of donation, and on the form you will be asked to enter the personalised message you would like engraved on your leaf. (There is a maximum of 26 characters per line, including spaces. Three lines are available). 


We will contact you to acknowledge your dedication and the spelling. Please check the details carefully and if you have any changes, let us know within 5 working days before we start the engraving process.

We will let you know when your leaf is ready to hang on the tree. After your donation period ends, you can decide if you wish to renew or take your leaf home.

If you would like to make further enquiries, please contact or call 01908 303074.

Thank you for your generous contribution!
