St Richard's Hospice

Our 1,200 Dragonflies are in full flight at St Andrew's Spire in Worcester at the moment - but why did we choose the dragonfly as a symbol of our care?

Not only is the dragonfly a beautiful creature, but it holds a special place in our hearts when it comes to supporting families through difficult times 💙

Here at St Richard’s we understand how illness and bereavement can cause enormous changes for a family, and that children of all ages need the opportunity to talk about their feelings.

Our Dragonfly Group helps to provide this opportunity to explore their emotions and offers children the chance to talk with others in a similar situation.

We chose this name for the group after reading Doris Stickney’s tale “Waterbugs and Dragonflies: Explaining Death to Young Children” which tells how waterbugs grow into dragonflies but are unable to return to their friends to explain what has happened to them.

Pictured are some of our Waterbugs learning about our Celebration Garden Dragonflies, which are available in exchange for a donation amount of your choice.
