Donating or fundraising in memory of someone is a very special and meaningful way to honour their life and help others at the same time.
Every year donations to celebrate the lives of people who have died help us to support and care for others at St Oswald’s Hospice. There are lots of ways you can make a difference to other people’s lives and commemorate your loved one, friend or family member. Your generosity will support someone else, helping our expert to team to provide comfort, peace and happy moments, even during difficult times
Light up a Life
This winter, you can remember a loved one by dedicating a light for them on our hospice Christmas tree. We are also hosting a virtual remembrance service you can watch from home on Sunday 6th December, which we hope will offer comfort to our whole community at the end of a difficult year.Find out more
Planning your loved one's funeral
Losing someone close to you is never easy. There is lots to organise and think about at a time where you are grieving. Right now, because of Covid-19 restrictions, saying goodbye is even more difficult, as you might not be able to plan a funeral in the way you imagined.Find out more
Asking friends and family to make a donation in lieu of flowers or holding a collection at a funeral service is a lovely way to commemorate the life of a loved one and a special way to support our work with families at a difficult time. Every gift we receive, no matter how small or large, makes a difference.Find out more
