The Celebrate Lives Lived Gardens
This May, our Celebrate Lives Lived gardens will be full of orange gerberas that have been dedicated as a symbol of celebration and remembrance for a loved one.
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of St Giles Hospice, we have chosen the orange gerbera which is a symbol of joy, happiness and warmth.
Each gerbera is a colourful sign personalised with the name of a loved one, each sign is then placed in one of our Celebrate Lives Lived gardens, creating a wonderful display of celebration and remembrance.
Garden opening times:
St Giles Hospice Whittington – open every day throughout May.
St Giles Hospice Walsall – open every day throughout May.
St Giles Hospice Sutton Coldfield – open between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday throughout May. Also open Saturday 12th May, 10:30am to 1:30pm.

Community Garden, Beacon Park – open from the 21st to 31st May, from 12pm to 4pm each day. Please note that Monday 28th May is Lichfield Bower Day and a fee will be charged to enter Beacon Park on this day only.
Here’s how to take part
During May 2018, your orange gerbera(s) will be placed in the garden of your choice.
Each gerbera is a colourful sign featuring your loved one’s name.
You will also receive a pack of gerbera seeds for your home and an invitation to come and visit your dedicated flower in May.
Once the garden has finished at the end of the month, you will be able to keep your gerbera as a wonderful keepsake.
We’ll let you know the dates available for you to come and collect your gerbera sign.

Maria said: “The passing of loved ones is very difficult and we never expected that we would need to use the hospice ourselves, but we were so thankful for all their support and the amazing work they do. We are delighted to be able to support Celebrate Lives Lived as part of our commitment to St Giles.’
