SPECIAL people were remembered at Bolton Hospice's forget-me-not appeal.

More than 200 hospice supporters attended the service at Queens Park to dedicate wooden 'forget-me-nots' in memory of relatives or close friends.

About 290 of the wooden 'flowers' were dedicated, which all had the name of the person handwritten on them and were planted with forget-me-not seeds for a lasting tribute.

Stephanie Lacaille, community fundraising manager at Bolton Hospice, said: "The forget-me-not service was a moving tribute to loved ones missed across Bolton.

"All our inpatient bedrooms look out onto the garden and our team of volunteers work hard to make it a tranquil and beautiful space for patients.

"Money from the forget-me-not could go towards paying for new plants, benches and flowers which make the garden a relaxing and comforting space for visitors and patients alike."

There is still chance to dedicate a special forget-me-not until the end of June.
