Story

The SiMBA Trees of Tranquillity are stunning bespoke, hand crafted, life sized copper sculpture which has been created in response to the needs of parents. The Tree design is unique to SiMBA; each individual leaf is engraved with a personal message to honour their 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 Trees of Tranquillity are not just for the newly bereaved but also for families who may have sadly lost their baby years ago and were perhaps provided with little or no recognition of their babys existence. The Tree provides the means to express a private and public declaration in memory of the lost hopes and dreams that we all have for our babies. The SiMBA Trees of Tranquillity are a beautiful symbol of remembrance.

This page allows you to support the maintenance of our Trees of Tranquillity, including the re-installation of our Glasgow Tree of Tranquillity in the Walled Garden Area of Provan Hall. To learn more about SiMBA and the Trees of Tranquillity please visit our website : www.simbacharity.org.uk
