Thanks to the lifting of lockdown restrictions, Forest Holme Hospice is now able to hold a re-scheduled scaled down Tie A Yellow Ribbon event at the hospice on Thursday 5 August between 11am – 4pm.
The event usually takes place during Hospice Awareness Month in June, when it brings the community together in joint celebration of loved ones, irrespective of whether they were cared for at the hospice.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it was not possible to host Tie a Yellow Ribbon in the usual way this year, so the charity instead organised a yellow-ribbon inspired Arts Trail around Poole featuring work submitted by supporters.
However, with the government giving the green light to the lifting of many Covid restrictions, Forest Holme will now have a special stand set-up in the car park at the front of the hospice to allow visitors to write a message of dedication for a loved-one on a ribbon which will be put on display in the garden throughout the summer.
Paul Tucker, communications manager at Forest Holme, said: “We are so pleased that we finally have an opportunity to welcome supporters back to the hospice after such a challenging 18 months.
“Tie A Yellow Ribbon is a very special date in the hospice calendar and is open to absolutely anyone who has lost a loved one and wants to make a dedication and donation in memory of them, whilst also helping future patients and their families.”
If you would like to dedicate a yellow ribbon, please visit Forest Holme at 5 Seldown Road, Poole BH15 1TS on Thursday 5th August between the hours of 11am and 4pm. The hospice will continue to maintain Covid-safe measures in line with NHS guidelines.
