St Luke's Celebration of Life Garden Party

The popular annual event usually take place in the beautiful St Luke’s gardens at Little Common Lane.

Following a year of pandemic restrictions, though, the Celebration of Life has gone online.

But as families and friends are now able to meet again, organisers are also hoping supporters will mark the occasion with their own Covid safe Celebration of Life garden parties.

St Luke’s head of Fundraising Joasia Lesniak said: “This year we are sadly unable to invite our friends and supporters to the St Luke’s gardens.

“But to help you celebrate your loved ones at this special time, we are asking our supporters to host their very own Celebration of Life garden party at home, complying at all times with current government Covid advice and regulations.

“To help with this, we have created a range of resources available for you to download from the St Luke’s website and we hope these will help you to create your own special event.

“We would love to see all of your Celebration of Life Garden Party at home photos too.

“Please share them with us and other supporters by tagging us in your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram stories and posts.”

As ever, this year’s Celebration of Life will include the opportunity to donate and dedicate a St Luke’s daisy in memory of a loved one by post or by visiting

All dedications received before Monday, July 12 will be displayed in the St Luke’s Book of Celebration, which will be available to view online as part of a special Memory Meadow from Monday, July 19.
