In memory

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

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.
