We commissioned local artist Alan Pennington to capture the breathtaking event which saw scores of limited-edition flowers on display in the grounds of Renishaw Hall.

The appeal has been hailed as a success by the North Derbyshire charity after more than 1,500 supporters backed the appeal to fund care for patients and families.

Peter Clark, managing partner at Graysons, said:

“It was an honour to support the exceptional care provided by the hospice and we thought the success of the Forget-Me-Not Appeal at Renishaw Hall deserved to be remembered in a visual way.”

When the opportunity came up to play a leading role in the appeal, Graysons was only too pleased to help and became its sponsor – for the second year running.

Ashgate Hospice’s Forget-Me-Not Appeal was unveiled with a stunning display of around 2,000 purple flowers at Renishaw Hall and Gardens, near Eckington, a few weeks ago.

The appeal provided a unique way for donors to pay a lasting tribute to loved ones in breath-taking surroundings – last year the event took place at Chatsworth. Almost £48,000 has been raised towards the hospice’s care.

Jack Wood, head of fundraising at Ashgate Hospice, added:

“We’re so grateful to everyone at Graysons for backing our Forget-Me-Not Appeal and helping us make it such a success.

Not only did it sponsor the campaign, but it came out to help us at the launch of our poignant display at Renishaw Hall.

It’s because of Graysons and all of the wonderful people across North Derbyshire who backed our appeal that we’re able to provide care for patients when they need us most. Thanks to everyone for their incredible support!”

Graysons supplied volunteers for the duration of the Forget Me Not event at Renishaw and has supported the exemplary work of Ashgate Hospice in many different ways over the years. We have provided drop-in clinics to give advice on wills and powers of attorney and staff have participated in fundraising events for the charity, including abseiling at Millers Dale Head.
