Collecting in memory of a loved one is a very special way to honour their life.
Your support will have a lasting impact on the lives of the people we care for. Thank you for choosing to think of others who need our help.

How you can remember a loved one
Collect at the funeral or memorial service
You can request gifts on the day by adding a message in the invitation and the order of service. Our name is ‘Pembridge Hospice Charity’ (part of CLCH charity, registered charity no. 1120231).
We can also provide leaflets, donation forms and a collection tin for the day to collect cash if you like.
You can put donation forms out to encourage people to declare Gift Aid on their contribution if possible. Tax payers who declare Gift Aid enable us to claim back 25% of their gift (so £40 becomes £50).
Set up an online collection page
Set up an online collection page to give family and friends a way to easily donate in memory and leave a tribute comment even if they cannot attend the funeral service.
The page only takes a few minutes for you to set up, or we are happy to set one up for you and send you the link. You can include a short story and photos of your loved one if you like.
Set up a Tribute Tree Fund
A Tribute Tree Fund is a lasting celebration of life. It gives a way for you, your family and friends to do anything from a collection at the funeral to skydiving to running, walking, knitting, baking or anything else in memory of your loved one. You will have an online hub to direct people to and we will give you updates on how your fundraising is helping.
We know you might not be thinking about this straight away and you can set up a Tribute Tree Fund at any time.
Take part in or organise an event
We can offer you lots of support and ideas, whether you want to take part in a challenge event and raise sponsorship or organise a fundraiser in memory of your loved one.
Set up a regular donation
We rely on your support to provide so many vital services to our patients. By making a regular donation – either monthly, quarterly or annually on a special anniversary – you will be helping hundreds of people to get the possible care every year.
You can really help…
could sponsor a nurse to receive specialist palliative care training and provide the best possible care for our patients
could fund a day of rehabilitation sessions that help people to live at home for as long as possible with independence and dignity
could fund enough art supplies for two weeks of creative art sessions that help patients to enjoy life and forget about their illness
could provide two therapeutic massage sessions to help alleviate pain and anxiety
could buy a birthday present for a patient with no family
