Gravesend hospice Ellenor has collaborated with a British jewellery designer to create a poignant charm designed in memory of loved ones.

Designer Katie Mullally has introduced an exclusive bespoke charm, which can be worn on either a necklace or bracelet, comes in a choice of yellow plated gold or 925 sterling silver, and is available for both men and women.

The delicate and powerful design the ‘Kiss Charm’, designed on a round circle, symbolises the hospice’s philosophy: when time is precious, make the most of it and seal your memories with a loving kiss.

The charity provides support to families facing terminal illness, and is the only hospice in Kent that provides care for people of all ages.

Just recently, gardeners from all over Kent opened their gardens to the public as part of Ellenor’s Glorious Gardens programme.

Speaking about the collaboration, Ellenor’s chief executive Claire Cardy said: “We’re very excited to be working with Katie.

“This collaboration is important as it is an opportunity to raise the profile of Ellenor and support growth in both awareness and fundraising income.

“Every year we care for more than 2,500 families who are facing a terminal illness – we require your support and donations to continue to provide this vital care, as we know that more people than ever need our services. The charm is beautiful, we hope you love it too.”

Katie, who started her business seven years ago, is delighted to have been asked by Ellenor to create the poignant memento.

“Helping patients and families facing terminal illness is vitally important and Ellenor makes a lasting difference to so many adults and children across Kent,” Said Katie.

“I was looking for a charity I could collaborate with and Ellenor was my first choice as I wanted to create a charm that could be worn to remember loved ones.”

The charms can be bought exclusively from, where 20pc of all charm sales will be donated to Ellenor.

To receive a charm in time for Christmas, order by December 19.
