Mountbatten Sunflower Fund As the lockdown is gradually lifted, so are our spirits - so join us in showing your support for Mountbatten by wearing a sunflower. The sunflower is our symbol of solidarity and community and represents our hospice care on the island. The flower follows the sun, seeking out its warmth and light, and represents sunnier times and along with it, hope for the future. Life may be slowly returning to a version of normality, but we are still in need of your unwavering generosity and steadfast support. To survive this pandemic, we need to continue to replace funds lost through cancelled events and our shop closures. By wearing a sunflower, you are showing your support for Mountbatten, whether you wear yours in memory of a loved one, in celebration or purely pride in being part of our family. Let's face the future together. Stand with us! Spread the word....and the sunshine. Thank you to everyone who has supported Mountbatten - especially in these challenging months. We literally would not be here without you. How can I support?
