Highland Hospice has installed a beautifully crafted ‘Memory Tree’ on the wall of its reception area in Ness House, Inverness.

Head of Fundraising Andrew Leaver explains, “For many years, supporters have asked us about the possibility of a lasting tribute to a loved one within the Hospice building, and we are delighted that we can now offer this as a source of comfort to friends and relatives.

Thank you so much to the talented Claudia Ashley Brown of Perspexangel for designing the tree for us, we are delighted with how it looks and what it stands for.

We chose the Rowan tree for our design, as not only is it a beautiful native Highland broadleaf, its symbolism also resonates with the Hospice ethos. Since ancient times people have been planting a Rowan beside their home as in Celtic mythology it’s known as ‘The Tree of Life’ and symbolises courage, wisdom and protection.”

The first inscribed leaf on the tree was from the Hospice’s long-standing fundraising volunteer, Marion Sutherland from Golspie, and simply reads, “Here, love is the key.”
