Highland Hospice has welcomed the installation of a hand-crafted Memory Tree in the reception of Ness House.

It was designed to create a lasting tribute to loved ones, as the leaves are inscribed with messages and personal dedications. Hospice head of fundraising Andrew Leaver was delighted with the artwork.

“Thank you so much to the talented Claudia Ashley Brown, of Perspexangel, for designing the tree for us,” he said.

“We are delighted with how it looks and what it stands for. We chose the Rowan tree for our design, as not only is it a beautiful native Highland broadleaf, its symbolism also resonates with the hospice ethos.

“In Celtic mythology it’s known as ‘The Tree of Life’.”
