A striking display of expertly crafted flowers within the grounds of Cardiff Castle opened to the public on Saturday (July 24).
Launched by leading Cardiff charity City Hospice earlier this year, the Forever Flowers campaign celebrates the lives of loved ones in a special way with unique and lasting tributes.
Supporters were invited to pre-order the limited-edition flowers to remember cherished family members, friends and loved ones. The campaign received an incredible response, and over a thousand Forever Flowers feature in the display, which is free to visit and runs until Sunday, August 8.
Forever Flowers supports the work of City Hospice, Cardiff’s local hospice, which is the only provider of home-based specialist palliative care in the capital.
The charity provides care and compassion to 550 patients at any one time with terminal or life-limiting illnesses such as cancer, dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and motor neurone disease (MND), as well as counselling and support services for their families.
Liz Andrews, Chief Executive of City Hospice, said:
“We are so pleased to welcome everyone to the Forever Flowers display at such an iconic location. We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to the campaign, which helps us remember and cherish loved ones and celebrate the important work of the charity.
“The display is free to visit and is something truly special; we encourage people to make a visit part of their plans during these first weeks of the summer holidays!”
