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:
In memoriam donations
You can make a secure donation online here
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. You can also order our specially designed Hospice of St Francis Collection Boxes which can be used to collect donations.
If this is something you have considered, we are also happy to let you have a supply of specially printed envelopes which, if completed correctly by the donor, allow us to claim Gift Aid on the donation, thereby increasing that donation 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 to the Hospice at any time.
Setting up a Memory Fund
A memory fund is a positive and simple way to remember someone special. Set up in the name of your loved one the fund creates a wonderful way to celebrate their life in a way that makes a real difference to the lives of others.
Take our Setting up a Memory Fund page for more information.

Another way of remembering your loved one is by buying a leaf on our In Memory Tree that has your loved one’s name inscribed upon it which will then be displayed in a prime position at our Hospice.
