Heart of Kent Hospice Sunflower Appeal

Categories: Fundraising.

Heart of Kent Hospice are inviting people to take part in their 2022 Sunflower Appeal.

Remembrance and reflection are an important part of life at Heart of Kent Hospice and this year they will be creating a sea of yellow with their sustainable sunflower plaques, which will be on display in our beautiful Hospice Garden on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 June 2022.

Supporter Care Manager at Heart of Kent Hospice Claire Ashby said,

“Nothing says the start of summer quite like the bright warm thoughts of a sunflower.   Our annual Sunflower appeal is the perfect opportunity to remember the smiles and memories that we have shared with our loved ones.

By dedicating a sunflower plaque in memory of your loved one and making a donation, you are helping the Hospice to raise vital funds to continue providing specialist care and support to terminally ill people and their loved ones.”

There are two events which we hope people will come along to.  The first will take place on Friday 10 June between 10am and 12 noon and one on Saturday 11 June from 10 am to 12 noon and also from 2pm to 4pm.

Everyone can enjoy the refreshment being served from the café and purchase home-grown plants and shrubs.

The care the Hospice provides does not stop when a loved one dies, as they continue to support to families over the weeks and years that follow.

About the Hospice

Heart of Kent Hospice has been providing free, compassionate, end-of-life care to people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones in Maidstone, Aylesford, Tonbridge and Malling and the surrounding towns and villages for the past 31 years.

The Hospice has built an excellent reputation within the local community for the quality of our care, which has been further endorsed by the Care Quality Commission who awarded us with an overall rating of ‘Outstanding’ following an inspection in February 2017.

Our vision is for everyone living with a terminal illness in our community to achieve the best quality of life. We are committed to achieving this by enabling them to live in comfort, with independence and dignity to the end of their lives, and to support those closest to them.

Last year the Hospice cared for over 1,700 patients and their families in their own homes or at our Aylesford-based Hospice. Our services cost £5 million a year to run, and we depend heavily on our loyal supporters, whose generous donations and fundraising activity account for £3 out of every £4 spent on our services.
