Gift in Memory

Help make a positive impact whilst keeping a loved one’s memory alive.

A gift in memory is a lovely way to remember a loved one through a donation dedicated in their name. There are a number of ways that you can support our work by giving charitable contributions in memory of someone who has passed, below are just a few examples of how you may wish to do so. You can also find out more by downloading our leaflet.

Donate directly online in memory of a loved one

You can use our easy and secure online form to make a donation in memory of a loved one. After you have made a donation you will be able to leave a message in memory of them. Make a online donation.

Donations in lieu of flowers at funerals

Lots of families choose to have donations in lieu of flowers at their loved one’s funeral and we are very grateful that you have thought of St Andrew’s Hospice as the charity to receive these gifts. We can provide collection boxes or personalised envelopes to help make it easier and more special. Please contact us to arrange for these to be sent to you, or you can ask the funeral director to contact us directly. We can then also be aware of others donating in memory of your loved one.

Memory page 

You may like to set up a heartfelt tribute fund on JustGiving where you can include a picture and treasured memories of your loved one. Contributors can also share messages of support and memories. Some people choose to mark an anniversary and remember someone special by hosting their own fundraiser.

Light Up A Life and in memory events 

We host a range of events: from fundraising events you can participate in in memory of an individual, to memory days including our annual Light up a Life service where we celebrate the lives of loved ones together.

Giving Tree 

Dedicate a stunning engraved leaf on our Giving Tree as a lasting honour to someone special. Ava’s family have used this memorial to remember her. Read Ava’s story here.
