Donate in memory

Making an in memory donation to the hospice is a very important contribution and one which can make the world of difference to us. It means we can continue to provide the very highest standard of care to those in our community who need it most.

There are many ways you can cherish a loved ones memory.

Your Memory Tree

Your Memory Tree provides a lasting tribute to those you care about who have affected your life in a positive way.

Your Memory Tree is a hand made bespoke item created by artist Claudia-Ashley-Brown. It features 450 leaves in three hues that can be engraved with the name of your loved one. Celebrate their life with this lasting tribute.

The Memory Tree is situated in our Reception area, so you can easily visit whenever you wish to spend time to think about your loved one.

We ask for a suggested minimum donation of £150 (or £12 per month) to dedicate a leaf. Your dedication will help us to provide care, support and activities to local adults and children with life limiting illnesses.

Tribute funds

Sometimes when you least expect it the memory of a loved one comes back to you. The music you enjoyed together, a special family holiday, a favourite television programme or the smell of the jumper they wore.

Our Cherished Memory Tribute Pages, provided by Much Loved, allow you to create a permanent online memorial for your loved one. The special page, which can be fully personalised, allows you to upload photos, music and stories along with lighting virtual candles as you remember the special times you had together.

If you wish, you can also donate to your loved ones Cherished Memory Tribute fund. Donations made in lieu of flowers are often the first contributions.

Funeral collections

If you have recently lost a loved one, please accept our sincere condolences on your bereavement. It is very kind of you to be thinking of us at this time.

Collection Envelopes for funeral services

A special way of giving an in memoriam gift is to request donations from family, friends and colleagues in lieu of flowers at the funeral. This can be arranged by your funeral director, or we have donation envelopes that we can provide for you.

If you would like to order envelopes, please email us below or call 01228 810801.

Please accept our heartfelt thanks for thinking of us at such a difficult time.
