A memory tree has been set up at a south Norfolk garden centre to help raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Visitors to Blooms of Bressingham Garden Centre, near Diss, are invited to write down their memories and recollections of friends and family and place them on the tree.
The memory tree will be available until Christmas Eve.
Adrian Goodall, general manager of Blooms of Bressingham, said: “We are inviting people to write their favourite memories of friends and loved ones on a special tag and place it on our memory tree to help raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.”
People who wish to put their thoughts in writing can pick up a special tag from the garden centre in return for a donation to the charity.
The Alzheimer’s Society is the Garden Centre Group’s national charity of the year. The charity is the UK’s leading support and research charity for people with dementia.
