“We would be delighted if our St Luke’s daisy could become a symbol of hope for you and your family this summer.

“An everlasting celebration of life and love and the hope that better times will come.

“Your daisy could be a touching tribute to the life of a loved one or a beautiful gift for someone you love and treasure every day – even if you haven’t been able to hug them for a while.”

They are made of lacquered brass and steel, standing 50cm tall and 18cm wide.

Each flower has a hollow stem which can be filled with a heartfelt note to a loved one.

They can sit outside in a garden as a lasting symbol of hope, or they could be on display in the home.

The money raised from the sale of each daisy will help St Luke’s to continue to care and support more than 1,000 patients and their families each year.
