In times of great sadness, making a donation to charity to celebrate someone’s life can be a real comfort. Your gesture will enable us to continue to provide our invaluable services to many more families who need us
There are many ways to honour your loved one’s memory and support The Hospice of St Francis at the same time:
Donate In Memory
You can make a secure donation online here.
Create a Lasting Tribute
A tribute page is a personalised, simple way to remember someone special. Set up in the name of your loved one the page is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. You can add photos, memories, music, leave messages and light virtual candles and the page will last forever. With a unique weblink you can share this special tribute with friends and family and make secure donations which come directly to the Hospice.

Dedicate a leaf on our Memory Tree
Another way of remembering your loved one is by buying a leaf on our Memory Tree that has your loved one’s name engraved upon it forever. Your special leaf will then be displayed on our beautiful Memory Tree at the Hospice.

Donations in lieu of flowers
Many people prefer to ask friends and relatives to make a donation to support the work here at The Hospice of St Francis, in lieu of flowers at a funeral service. Funeral Directors are usually happy to organise collecting the contributions and take responsibility for forwarding them to us.
If this is something you have considered, we can provide you with a collection box or special donation envelopes. If the envelopes are filled in fully by the donor, it will allow us to claim Gift Aid on the donation, thereby increasing the value of their gift by 25% (if the donor is a tax payer). You may also like to distribute these to family and friends who cannot make the service. The envelopes can be collected in or forwarded via the pre-printed Freepost address to the Hospice at any time.
