Tie a Yellow Ribbon

July 1 - September 30

Tie a Yellow Ribbon takes place each year, during Hospice Awareness Month in June, and is a special commemorative event for many of our supporters. The day brings the community together in joint celebration of our loved ones who are absent in body, but remain with us in spirit.

Every summer the yellow ribbon dedications glisten in the sunshine outside the hospice and are a visual reminder of the love and fond memories we have of our partners, family members and friends.

Under the current Government guidelines, our usual Tie a Yellow Ribbon event on June 18th will unfortunately not take place at the hospice this year, so instead we would like to expand our yellow ribbon display out into the local community.

Join us in displaying yellow ribbons in your windows and gardens across Dorset and beyond. Please feel free to be creative with your designs (see some wonderful ideas from our supporters below) but for ease, we have produced a ribbon template that this available to download here.

Follow our Step By Step Guide here and share your photographs via our social media pages.

Please visit our Dedications page to see your submissions.
