York Hospital Cancer Centre Looks for Right Words

York Hospital 2

2:12pm 23rd April 2013

The Cancer Care Centre (CCC) & Magnolia Centre at York Hospital has recently launched an appeal to raise £20,000 to create a new garden and walkway area which can be enjoyed by anyone affected by cancer.

As part of the project, a piece of stone art will be created which will be fixed to the wall in the new garden space. This will be a decorative piece of wall art that the CCC would like to have engraved with writing.

Because this is a unique piece, the CCC is asking members of the public to come up with some creative writing that will be engraved on the stone. This can be anything from one word to a paragraph; ranging from an original piece of writing to an existing quote.

Jane Archer, Cancer Care Centre Manager said, “We are delighted that this is being donated, but we need to have something written on the beautiful piece of stone which we can display in the garden. We really want to involve the public in this project and we felt this was a nice way to do so. Many people in the local community will use the new garden if they visit the CCC so we wanted to involve everybody in creating this piece. This will be a special place for cancer patients and their families to spend time and we are looking for that word or phrase that people can relate to.”

The piece of stone will be approximately 2 metres high by 1 metre wide. Entries should be returned to Jane Archer at the CCC in York Hospital by Friday 10 May or emailed to jane.archer@york.nhs.uk .The winning entry will be engraved on the piece of stone ready for the opening of the garden in the summer.
