In memory of

In times of great sadness, choosing to give in memory of a loved one or someone special can be a real comfort. Giving in memory of friends and family is a wonderful tribute and ensures we can continue to make a difference to our patients and their families, now and in the future. There are lots of different ways to give in memory and we are on hand to support in any way we can.

Funeral donations (Money collections, including gift aid, and flowers)

You may wish to hold a collection at your loved one’s funeral or memorial service. We are of course happy to provide you with collection buckets, but also our personalised envelopes. They are discreet and allow friends and family to ‘Gift Aid’ their donation at no extra cost.

We also find that people wish to donate flower arrangements from funerals and memorial services, which we are happy to accept. Our volunteers use these flowers to create the beautiful floral arrangements around the hospice, which we know brings joy to our patients.

Funeral directors are always happy to assist with the above arrangements however, please note if you arrange donations through your funeral director, please allow more time for us to arrange for a thank you letter to be sent to you.

For more support you can email or phone 01256 848848.
