Every year, on or around Midsummer’s Day, we are given a dozen red roses as a peppercorn rent from the wonderful Naomi House & Jacksplace, which sit in our grounds at Sutton Manor.
This year, the children even made a beautiful rose-themed card for Naomi and David.
The roses are then given back to a child or young adult visiting the hospices.
The tradition was started by our founder, Mary Cornelius-Reid, when Mary gave permission for the hospice to be built on her land.
The team at Naomi House and Jack’s Place really are remarkable and the care and support they give life limited children and their families is incredibly special.
It’s an honour to be part of their story.
