This beautiful piece of work is in the tranquil landscaped garden next to the Macmillan Centre on the grounds of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn. The metal tree, crafted by Mark Reed Sculpture and commissioned by the Hospital League of Friends, made its journey from Ashill Fruit Farm with a police escort on Saturday morning around 9:30 am, and now is in place for patients and their families to enjoy, sit in the shade, and listen to the tinkling sound of the leaves in a gentle breeze whilst thinking about those who may no longer be with us.
Families will be able to commission a personal message to be permanently engraved on one of its leaves.
Carl Reed who recently lost his wife, Cheryl, to Breast Cancer very kindly took the picture (above) to show his daughters and will be one of many engraving a leaf, he is also trying to raise £2,500 for Macmillan, and her memorial. Macmillan helps people from the moment of diagnosis and continues to support their families following their passing. They are in his words “The most amazing people wanting to help you when you need it most”
Each individual leaf will be engraved by Javik Laser Creations on Hardwick Narrows
