Give in Memory
Giving to the hospice in memory of a loved one will help our wonderful nurses provide expert and compassionate hospice care to other local families. Thank you so much for thinking of us.Donate now
Create a personalised tribute fund
Tribute funds are online memorial pages where family and friends can come together to create something positive in memory of a loved one, whilst supporting the work of St Peter & St James Hospice. You can announce funeral information, share photos and memories, light virtual candles, celebrate important dates and keep track of money raised for the hospice in honour of that special person. Often, tribute funds become a great source of comfort as they can be visited at any time and offer a place to share in happy memories and reflections.
Search for a tribute fund
Some families choose to give to the hospice in lieu of flowers at a funeral. If you would like to do this, we’re here to support you. We can supply you a funeral donation box, which can be personalised with a favourite photograph of the person who has died. This includes donation forms and envelopes for those who may prefer to give via card or cheque, and also offers people the opportunity to Gift Aid their donation. Alternatively, we can supply a hospice branded collection bucket or a smaller collection tin. If you’d like to organise boxes, buckets or tins for an upcoming funeral service, please call us on 01444 471598 and we’ll be happy to help.
Please give us as much notice as possible so we can make sure we have enough donation envelopes for everyone attending the service, and can get these to you in time.
In memory tree
Remember someone special with a lasting and personal tribute on the beautiful, wall-mounted memory tree in our hospice reception area. Your copper heart will be engraved with the wording of your choice and displayed on the memory tree as a celebration of life.
The cost of a personalised heart is £90 for one year including engraving (or you can pay monthly instalments of £7.50). After this time, you can pay to display your heart for another year, or have it sent home to you as a keepsake.
Other ways to give in memory of a loved one
There are many other ways in which you could give to the hospice in memory of a loved one. You could take on a personal challenge such as a skydive or trek, you and your family or a group of friends could join one of our events, or you could choose to sponsor a nurse or leave a gift to the hospice in your Will.
If you’re in need of some inspiration or would like to talk through some ideas, please give our friendly Fundraising team a call on 01444 471598.
Whatever you choose to do, your support will help to provide expert and compassionate care to other local families and we cannot thank you enough.
