Raising money in a loved one's memory at a funeral, memorial or celebration of life event

Many people choose to support St. Luke’s Hospice by asking friends and family to make donations in lieu of funeral flowers or through a collection at a memorial or celebration of life.

Donations made in a loved one’s memory like this are a really special way of remembering that person, while also making a contribution in their memory towards the compassionate end of life care St. Luke’s Hospice provides to local people and their families.

Donation envelopes

Our donation envelopes can be personalised with your loved one’s name and include a donation form. They can be given to friends and family who attend the funeral, inserted into the order of service, or displayed at a wake or remembrance event.

Online tribute funds

A tribute fund is an online page dedicated to a loved one who has died. It’s a place where you can upload photos, display details relating to a funeral or celebration of life event, share special memories, light virtual candles and make donations in your loved-one’s name. Once a page has been created, you can share the link with friends and family who will also be able to leave messages and make donations.

Your tribute fund will last indefinitely, which means that donations can be made in memory of your loved one on special occasions, such as anniversaries and birthdays, for years to come, as a lasting tribute to their memory.

You can find out more and create a page using MuchLoved or complete our order form and we can arrange to set up a page for you.
