At school we plant a tree in memory of staff or pupils who have died. Each is chosen to be a reflection of that person - eg flowering cherry for a fluffy pink lady, rowan for boy of same name. Do you have space for a tree?

We had a wear-what-you-want day for one pupil and sent the money to the hospice who had cared for her. Their thank you certificate is framed in the entrance hall and had flowers on a table in front of it for several months.

10 of us ran the race for life in memory of our friend and colleague who died from cancer.

I'm sure others will have good suggestions. I hope whatever you do can be as happy an occasion as possible.

When my dad passed away, his office put a framed photograph of him up in the reception area with a short memorial underneath. It meant the world to us as his family that he was remembered in such a way by the people he worked with.

It's really lovely that you are thinking of doing something for employee.
