A Rainbow of Ribbons

23rd August 2022
We have been asking our supporters to dedicate a ribbon in memory of their loved one to help us continue to care for local families, and bring colour and joy to people in their darkest days.

On Sunday 21 August, an ancient red oak tree in Oxford’s University Parks was transformed into a rainbow of hundreds of colourful ribbons fluttering in the summer breeze in memory of loved ones.

The display has been installed in the Parks – between North Lodge and Keble Gates – until Tuesday 30 August. After this, the display will be moved to our reception for one month, during which time people can collect their ribbon if they wish to keep it as a treasured memory.

So far, we have raised over £12,700 through the Rainbow of Ribbons celebration, which is enough to pay for 21 days of care for a patient on our specialist inpatient unit.

Our charity team will continue to add colourful ribbons to the display at the Parks and subsequently in the Hospice. To add a ribbon is simple – please click the button below or call the charity team on 01865 857007 to make your pledge and your ribbon will soon feature on this beautiful piece of art.
