Location: Hospital School, Nottingham Children’s Hospital
Date: April 2019
Ducklings charity raised the funds to purchase this beautiful golden memorial tree with opaque perspex leaves in the colours of the rainbow. Situated in the roof top play area of the children’s
hospital school this is a vibrant art piece to raise the spirits of child in-patients at the Nottingham children’s hospital and attending the children’s school there. The play area is a happy place for
children and families so the hospital school decided to go for vibrant non-engraved leaves.
The primary function of this memorial tree is as a standalone art piece. However, the staff and families of bereaved children also know that the tree also serves as beautiful memorial remembering the lives of children now deceased.
