Celebration Garden

Hundreds of hand-crafted snowdrop sculptures will be planted in Worcester this summer, raising funds to support patients and their families.

Installation Date: 9 to 28 August 2024

Location: The gardens of The Hive, Sawmill Close, The Butts, Worcester WR1 3PD

You can visit the swaying snowdrops in the gardens from 2pm on Friday, 9 August until 10am on Monday, 26 August.

Celebrate and remember the life of a loved one or a special occasion with a snowdrop in this emotive display and then take the sculpture home as a keepsake or a gift.

Emily Gicquel, pictured above left next to her daughter Liv says:

Supporting Celebration Garden each year helps us feel close to Mum. We recently visited the hospice to take a stroll in its beautiful gardens and the feeling was still the same – we felt connected. We were as warmly welcomed five years on as we were at the end of Mum’s life. St Richard’s will always be part of our family and when the snowdrops are all in place we’ll know there are hundreds of others who feel the same.

Each snowdrop is uniquely commissioned by craftsman Ed Alvis of Metal Art UK, at his workshop near Evesham.

We would love to see your photos when you visit the garden at The Hive. Please remember to tag St Richard’s Hospice and use the hashtag #CelebrationGarden on social media so we can see your photos!

We invite you to donate and make a sculpture your own this year if you feel able. Thank you for your incredible support.
