Ring A Bell For Absent Friends

This is just a quick post to tell you about a wonderful little concept to remind us of absent friends this Christmas.

Pretty much all of us have someone dear to us who is away from home.  Wouldn’t it be nice then if there was a simple way to let them know how much we miss them.  Something as simple as a ringing bell!

The Silverbells Christmas Appeal run by Beaumount Hospital Foundation is a simple but touching concept to express our good wishes and affection to family and friends near and far.  

Silver Bells - Beaumount Hospital Foundation

A perfect gift to someone special or treat yourself as a lovely reminder for your loved one! The bell hangs from a red ribbon which can be hung from the Christmas tree, by a door or even over a photo frame.

It carries the message: “The gentle ring of a silver bell reminds us of all we hold dear; health, family, love and friendship”.


This gorgeous gift is made in Ireland and designed by silversmith, Seamus Gill and costs €15 plus postage.  Income from this appeal to support Beaumont Hospital Foundation in improving care and conditions for the 40,000 patients and their families who attend the hospital annually.


To buy this thought filled gift visit the Beaumount Hospital Foundation Silver Bells Appeals Page. Leave a personal greeting for the person you wish to send it to. Enter their name and postal details and Silver Bells will do the rest.
