Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice inviting people to be a part of a spectacular art exhibition and remember their loved ones.

Forget me not flowers can be dedicated to remember loved ones, or simply to celebrate the fantastic work of the hospice on its 30th anniversary.

Similar to the poppies displayed at the Tower of London, the beautiful iron flowers have been commissioned by The British Ironwork Centre, and will be displayed in the Hospice gardens from until July 7.

Hospice fundraiser, Anne Giblin says: “We are delighted to be able to offer these stunning keepsakes in our anniversary year. They are a lovely way to remember those no longer with us, or to commemorate the wonderful care the Hospice has provided over the last 30 years.

“Our beautiful Hospice gardens are the perfect setting for the forget me nots, and I know that the display will be a delight for our patients and their visitor.”

For a suggested minimum donation of £25.00, you can dedicate your very own forget me not flower, which will then be yours to keep forever.

Flowers can be collected from the Hospice at the end of the display, or posted out at an extra charge of £5 per flower. You will also receive a dedication card and a packet of forget me not seeds, and your dedication will be printed in the Express.

Simply visit to make your dedication or complete the form in this week's Express.
