Giving In Memory

Make a lasting tribute to Overgate Hospice by giving in memory of a loved one. A gift in memory of your loved one is a wonderful way to honour their life whilst supporting a cause close to your heart.

Your gift will ensure that those who need it, can receive specialist care at the end of their life, it will allow our nurses to care for patients while those closest to them can spend the precious time left being their Husband, Wife, family member or friend.
 
This really does make a huge difference, thank you.
 
Here are some of the ways that you can donate a gift in memory.

Memory Tree


The Overgate Hospice Memory Tree offers a unique and meaningful way to remember your loved one. The tree consists of 500 elegant bronze, silver and gold leaves which can be engraved with the name of your loved one as a lasting tribute.

Donations in lieu of flowers


Many families decide to ask for donations to Overgate Hospice in lieu of sending flowers for a funeral as a lasting tribute to their loved one’s memory.

Ways in which this can be done are as follows:
Families may request that donations are sent to their chosen funeral director who after a suitable period, will forward the donations to us.
Alternatively, families may request donations be sent direct to Overgate. If this is the case then please include the name of the person you are donating in memory of so we can acknowledge all donations and inform the next of kin of the total amount collected.
 

Funeral Collections

 

As the Hospice is held close to many hearts, families may wish to hold a collection in memory of their loved one at their funeral. We can provide collection boxes on request or if preferred, the collection can be arranged with your chosen funeral director who will then send the donations directly to us following the service.
