Annual Memorial Day – 15 September

Stepping Stone Hospice’s Annual Memorial Day will take place on Sunday, 15 September, from 12 noon at the hospice’s In-Patient Unit in New Market Park. This annual event sees families and friends gather together to remember their loved ones and reconnect with the people who cared for them in their last days.

"This will be our sixth Memorial Day since opening our doors in 2013,” says Stepping Stone Hospice CEO, Tersia Burger. “To date, we have had over 1600 patients pass away under our care; people who we remember with love and fondness. On a personal level, I also honour the life of my daughter Vicky Bruce on this day. She was our very first patient, our very first death, and the reason that Stepping Stone Hospice exists at all."

Families and friends are encouraged to bring along a small photo, letter and/or token in memory of their loved one, to put inside a memory capsule that we will be placed in the hospice’s Garden of Remembrance on the day.

“’You are not alone’ has been our promise to the community from the very beginning, and that will never change,” says Tersia.

The month of September will see a 20% donation of all Memorial Tattoos done at the Tattoo Hub, donated to Stepping Stone Hospice.

September Charity Drive!

The Tattoo Hub appreciates the work done by Stepping Stone Hospice. Because we are a studio that cares about our community, we want to do our bit to lighten their financial load. We will donate 20% of our income from all memorial tattoos done during the month of September to Stepping Stone Hospice. Every tattoo in memory of a loved one during that time, will help a great cause! Come and support them by booking your memorial tattoo.
