Stunning stained glass forget me not suncatcher are on sale to support a local hospice.

St Ann’s Hospice, based in Little Hulton, are selling the bespoke, handcrafted suncatcher, as part of their Forget Me Not appeal.

The hospice’s symbol is the forget me not, with these flowers coming back every year to the hospice gardens.

They help all who visit the hospice to remember people who have been supported in past years who are gone but not forgotten.

The appeal is also being supported by the family of a former resident of the hospice, the Claytons.

Amanda Clayton said: “Since we lost my mum, Jackie Clayton, in 2018 my family has remained determined to support St Ann’s by fundraising and raising awareness of their brilliant work.

“My mum was a patient at the Heald Green site for eight weeks after being diagnosed with kidney cancer two years previously.

“My mum was a former shadow of herself before arriving at St Ann’s, but the staff supported my mum to put together the parts of herself she’d lost in the last few weeks of her life, which was so significant for our family.”

Forget Me Not celebration services will also take place at both the Little Hulton and Heald Green hospices.

These are open to everyone as an opportunity for reflection of the lives of loved ones and are taking place on Saturday 1st July.
