Sponsor a leaf on our Glass Giving Tree

Our Glass Giving Tree offers you the opportunity to have the name of a loved one inscribed on a leaf, to be displayed and remembered in the Hospice for as long as you’d like. For each leaf sponsored, we receive a donation which will provide us with the funds we need to continue providing our care and support in your loved one’s memory.

Mary Stevens Hospice commissioned Stourbridge artist, Charlotte Hughes-Martin to design and create The Glass Giving Tree. This beautiful, unique piece of artwork was produced at Red House Glass Cone, just three miles from the hospice. It will be a long-lasting feature in the entrance of our newly refurbished In-Patient Unit and we are very grateful to Charlotte for producing such a stunning creation.

Mary Stevens Hospice has been able to commission The Glass Giving Tree at no cost to the hospice, ensuring that every penny from every leaf goes directly towards patient care.  This has been made possible through a very kind donation left by Mr Bryan Marshall (pictured left with Princess Diana at the official opening).

Bryan was one of the first campaigners for a hospice in Stourbridge.  Through tireless work and fundraising, by Bryan and a group of friends, we have what is known today as Mary Stevens Hospice.  Bryan’s widow, Mary said:

“Bryan never really wanted any recognition for his work, I think he was just happy to see the vision take shape and for the people of Stourbridge to have their own hospice; however leaving this tree behind will ensure that he is able to continue helping the hospice even though he is no longer with us.

I know he would have been delighted with the way the tree looks; it’s even more beautiful than I could have imagined.”

Bryan’s name will be on the first leaf engraved, and will be an ever present legacy on the tree.
