Over 650 pom poms were made for the Hospice
Our Pom Pom Memory Pop installation is coming soon, with huge thanks to everyone who took part by making and donating a pom pom (or two) for the project.
A staggering 650+ pom poms were made and donated to the St Michael’s Hospice POM POM MEMORY POP project, and Hospice Wellbeing Assistant Felicity is now busy making them into a colourful window installation for the Hospice shop window in Queens Road (Hastings).
The installation will take place during Dying Matters Week (10th – 16th May), with each pom pom representing a memory of a loved one.
“We wanted to bring the community closer together through participation and visually representing memories of loved ones in a colourful celebration of togetherness. We were overwhelmed by the number of pom poms received and we would like to thank everyone who took part. We would also like to thank Morrisons in Hastings, for kindly being our pom pom drop off point. Additional thanks to the Battle Yarn Bombers who came up trumps when asked to make some pom pom’s – we were delighted to receive a delivery of multi-coloured pom poms from the talented team who bring colour and fun to the streets of Battle” said Felicity Truscott, Wellbeing Assistant.
