A unique artwork – the St Margaret’s Family Tree – has been specially commissioned to stand as a beautiful symbol of the families created and grown through St Margaret’s and our shared connection as the St Margaret’s family.
There will be 260 leaves in gold, copper and bronze on the St Margaret’s Family Tree and in May the artwork will be installed within the entrance to our Glasgow office. Once the world opens up again, you will be able to come and see the St Margaret’s Family Tree in place.
You can have a leaf engraved with a family name and for instance the date your family was created for £120 (if you are using the form below please enter details in the comments box). Each leaf will be displayed on the tree for a year. After this you can choose to renew your dedication or be given your leaf to treasure at home.
Like most charities we’ve not been immune to the difficulties surrounding Covid-19. The pressures of the pandemic led to an increase in the need for our services and at the same time, the restrictions led to us facing major funding gaps. By dedicating a leaf on our St Margaret’s Family Tree you will help us grow stronger as a charity and continue to support all the families who need us.
The first 15 people to dedicate a leaf will have their leaf added to the tree ahead of its installation – if you would like to be among the first please get in touch with us before Thursday 29 April.
There are a number of payment options available:
- Via bank transfer – please call the office on 0141 332 8371 and we can share the charity’s account details – the staff member can take your leaf dedication over the phone.
- Post a cheque for St Margaret’s Children & Family Care, please include a note within the envelope to let us know your ‘leaf dedication’ and post to our address > 26 Newton Place, Glasgow, G3 7PY
- You can also pay online on this page and share your leaf dedication below.
Leaf dedication can be up to 32 characters which will usually be over two or three lines:
