An awe-inspiring field of metal dandelions stood as the poignant culmination of a moving campaign from Acorns Children’s Hospice to remember lost loved ones.
Hundreds of limited-edition symbolic sculptures formed a special Garden of Wishes at the charity’s hospice for the Three Counties marking the close of this year’s Acorns Dandelion Appeal.
The campaign has captured the hearts of people across the West Midlands who, in paying tribute to their much-missed loved ones, are helping Acorns continue its care and support for local families during the darkest of times.
Those making dedications were invited to a special viewing of the installation on Saturday (9th September) in a touching spectacle that saw hundreds of the charity’s special-edition dandelions fill the garden at Acorns hospice in Worcester along with dozens of messages of love.
Siega Benwell, Deputy Matron at Acorns for the Three Counties, who joined the opening of the Garden of Wishes, said: “It has been wonderful to see the dandelions in our hospice garden. All of these beautiful sculptures, with their special messages, represent love which is felt all around our hospices each and every day.
