Tree of Life

Celebrate your loved one’s life  

When you buy a personalised leaf, you're creating a beautiful and lasting tribute to the memory of someone special to you.

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. Your donation will also help Willen Hospice to raise much needed funds.

Our handcrafted Tree of Life stands within the Peace Garden at Willen Hospice. Each leaf is beautifully personalised with an engraved message of your choice, either a memorable date, a name or an uplifting message.

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. You are invited to add a small ribbon of your choice to easily identify your leaf.

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. The project was only possible thanks to funding from the Albert Hunt Trust.

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

"I felt this was a fitting tribute to my beautiful Mum who died 3 years ago in her local hospice in Chichester, West Sussex.I wanted to leave Willen something to show my support as I retired from my role and this seemed the right thing to do; my Mum was my inspiration to become a nurse." - Angela Finn, Wellbeing Centre Lead Nurse
