In Memory of

The death of a loved one can be very difficult. We hope that some comfort may be found knowing that they received the best possible care from the dedicated team of staff and volunteers here at St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

When someone dies, often their family and friends like to pay tribute to their lives and help those in need by doing something to benefit future patients and families by helping us provide specialist care and support.

Choices can be anything from a one-off donation, a regular gift, funeral donations, remembering them on our Memory Tree and many more ways.

With so many different ways in which you, your family and friends can support St Wilfrid’s Hospice we are here to help you if you need ideas or advice.

Funeral Donations and Donations In Memory

Though Funeral Directors will forward to a family the names and value of donations from a funeral, St Wilfrid’s Hospice will not pass on the names or donation amounts of any donations given in memory to the Next of Kin or family member of the deceased.

Donations will only be acknowledged to the Next of Kin or family member when asked to do so in writing by the donor.

A Memorial Fund is set up internally for everyone that has passed away and any donations received for that individual will be included within this Memorial Fund, providing we have been notified.

The Next of Kin of the family member can request an overall total of how much has been received in the Memorial Fund, but a breakdown of these donations or donors is not possible due to Data Protection and GDPR.

Our online tribute funds are a wonderful way to remember someone special. You and your family and friends can share words, memories, photos or even videos, creating a lasting tribute.

What happens when a Tribute Fund is started?

Once a Tribute Fund is set up, they and others can support it in any way they choose. Some might like to make a donation on a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary, this can be done by lighting a candle on the page or giving a gift.

Others may wish to organise fundraising events or activities such as parties, coffee mornings or quizzes, or take part in a physical challenge such as a running event. It really is about whatever is right for you..
