We are currently fundraising towards a Tree of Tranquillity to be placed in the stunning grounds of Dunollie Museum Castle and Grounds. We at SiMBA have been working closely with the team at Dunollie Museum Castle and Grounds where a sheltered, quiet area within the grounds has been chosen. We want to make this a special place for everyone to visit, so in addition to the cost of fundraising for a tree and plaque we are also creating a natural seating area and a pathway to provide easier access to the tree site.
The SiMBA Trees of Tranquillity is a stunning hand crafted, life sized copper sculpture which has been created in response to the needs of parents. The Tree design is unique to SiMBA, and each individual leaf can be engraved with a personal message to honour a baby. Its aim is to offer bereaved parents the opportunity to honour their baby in a simple, quiet way and will effectively grow as leaves are added.
The Tree of Tranquillity is not just for the newly bereaved but also parents who sadly lost their baby years ago and were perhaps provided with little or no recognition of their babys existence. The Tree will provide the means to express a private and public declaration in memory of the lost hopes and dreams for the baby. It is a beautiful symbol of remembrance.
