Memory Day

  • 10:30 am - 2:00 pm
  • Shooting Star House Children’s Hospice

Memory Day is a safe space to join other families in treasuring your memories and the life of your child. This year we will be holding three memory days, and you can choose to attend whichever one you prefer.

At Memory Day you will be welcomed with a tea, coffee, shortbread and brownies. There will be a short service of remembrance featuring a video montage including photos of your child, and a buffet lunch. You can create a craft in memory of your child or visit our ‘Wall of Love’.

If you have not done so before, we would like to offer you a star for the Memory Tree in the Shooting Star House Memory Garden or leaf for the Memory Tree in Christopher’s Memory Garden. This would be engraved with your child’s name and there would be time for you to hang this yourself. We invite you to have a page in the Memory Book with a photo and words dedicated to your child.

To be as safe as possible, Memory Day will be held at Shooting Star House, with the opportunity to travel to Christopher’s after the service to visit or hang your child’s leaf in the Memory Garden. We are only able to invite parents and siblings. However, if you are attending alone, you can bring a friend or relative to support you.


Submitting your information

In order for the video, star, leaf and Memory Book to be ready for your Memory Day, it is essential that we receive your booking form by Thursday 28th April 2022. You will be sent a link to the booking form in the email confirmation for this event.

Please ring us with any questions or for help with this.

We do hope you are able to attend Memory Day and we look forward to hearing from you.
