The Forget-Me-Not appeal, which ran throughout June in the grounds of the beautiful Chatsworth estate, offered Ashgate Hospicecare’s supporters a garden ornament to help remember their loved ones in exchange for a suggested donation of £25 to the hospice. The limited-edition, purple and yellow flowers were made by the British Ironwork Centre and were displayed for those who had made donations and other visitors to Chatsworth from 8th to 30th June.
Members of Graysons’ private client team were present at the display daily throughout the month to assist volunteers from the hospice with meeting visitors to the attraction and to represent Graysons as sponsors of the event.
The event attracted large numbers of visitors from all over the country and was a huge success, raising an incredible £117,300 for Ashgate Hospicecare.
Anne Rogers, partner and head of Graysons’ private client team, and managing partner, Peter Clark, visited the hospice after the event finished to present its CEO with some artwork that Graysons had commissioned local artist, Alan Pennington, to create to commemorate the event (painting displayed below).
“The private client team put in a huge amount of effort to help ensure the success of this event. I’d like to thank them all for their hard work and commitment. As Ashgate Hospicecare says, your ‘incredible support at the display was truly heartwarming.’”
