With your help we will create this special garden made up of 1,200 vibrant and unique dragonflies which are handmade by The British Ironwork Centre in Oswestry especially for St Richard’s. You can celebrate and remember the life of a loved one with a dragonfly in this stunning display and then take the sculpture home to either plant in your own garden or give away as a gift.
The donation amount is your choice, and will help fund our care, however it may help you to know that a donation of £34.62 could pay for a Hospice at Home Healthcare Assistant for three hours, £43.44 could help to pay for a Day Hospice Nurse for an hour or £64.37 could pay for a Family Support Counsellor for a 5 hours.*
Dragonflies are on a first come, first served basis. You can either collect your dragonfly at the spire on 26th August between 12 noon – 2pm, or choose to have your dragonfly posted to you at an additional cost of £4.95 to your donation.
*this is the full cost of employing a member of staff and all on costs. Figures relate to the audited accounts 2017/18.
