Dr Kershaw's Hospice (SITE FULL) Closest site is Tandle Hill Country Park (FULL)
Turf Lane, Royton, Oldham
Dr. Kershaw’s Hospice has been in support of the ‘Life for a Life’ initiative since its launch on Friday 10th September 1999. Initially the planting site at this location was an unused lawned area within the grounds of the Hospice.
Dr. Kershaw’s Hospice is an officially appointed beneficiary of the ‘Life for a Life’ Charity Reg. No 1096422. A planting area has been established within the grounds of the Hospice. This site has proved to be overwhelmingly popular with local citizens and has now expanded to a site immediately adjacent to the rear of the Hospice grounds which is accessed from Salmon Fields between Shaw Lane B6194 and the A663 Shaw Road, Royton.
The planting area has already developed into a beautiful maturing forest with a pathway suitable for wheelchair users and the disabled. Several woodland benches have been donated over the years which complement the site and enable visitors to enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of the developing forest. The new extension to the existing site will become filled quite quickly over the course of the next couple of years. For this reason, clients thinking of planting a tree in the ‘Life for a Life’ Memorial Forest on the Salmon Fields site need to give this speedy consideration to avoid disappointment. This would also apply to Woodland Benches, which again have proved extremely popular. Viewing of this site is highly recommended.
Also recommended is a visit to the Hospice building where the Book of Remembrance is on display, the Hospice Chapel which is perfect for clients looking for a peaceful ambience in which to remember their lost loved ones. Since 1999, this Forest has generated an enormous amount of money for the Hospice and will continue to do so for many years to come.
