Memory Tree

Dedicate a leaf to your loved one

The Sobell House Memory Tree is a beautifully designed artwork, which has been installed at the Hospice. You are invited to dedicate a leaf on the tree to your loved one. Each leaf on the tree is packed full of love, experiences and memories.

By purchasing a leaf and supporting Sobell House you will help us to ensure that our patients can live life to the fullest, and in doing so you’ll be enabling other local families to create new memories to cherish. You can dedicate a leaf in memory of anyone special to you, even if they were not cared for by Sobell House Hospice.

The Memory Tree is located in a bright and peaceful space in the Hospice, near the charity office. While restrictions and social distancing measures remain in place at the Hospice, we are very pleased to say that we are now able to invite you to visit your special dedication on the Memory Tree. Visits need to booked in advance, and you can do this be contacting Sophie Chantler by emailing sophie.chantl[email protected] or calling 01865 857007.
