Upton House to host Rose to Remember display

This is the second year Katharine House has run the scheme

White, hand-crafted metal roses will be used to create a stunning temporary installation at Upton House this June, with each rose purchased in memory of a loved one.

The display is being created as part of The Rose to Remember scheme, which was first launched by Katharine House Hospice last year.   It gives people the chance to purchase a rose to honour the life of someone special.

This year the roses will displayed at Upton House between June 18 and 30.  During this time the National Trust is offering free admission to anyone who purchases a rose who wants to see it on display.    They are also invited to an exclusive viewing event at the start of the display period.

Each rose costs £30 and has been crafted by Black Country Metal Works.   Once the installation period at Upton House is complete the roses will be cleaned and available for the owner to keep.

Katharine House’s Individual Giving Manager, Sally Brooks, said: “Roses were the favourite flower of Katharine Gadsby, whom our hospice was named after, and now form part of our logo – so it feels like a fitting tribute to have chosen them as the theme for our annual event.

“We are so grateful for Upton Trust for their generosity, and for CMS Wealth for sponsoring the event this year.”
