​Many people choose to support Princess Alice Hospice in memory of someone they love. For them, it's a positive way to pay tribute to a loved one while helping many others receive compassionate care at the end of their lives.

​Ways to commemorate your loved one

First of all, thank you. We know that losing a loved one is very painful and we are so grateful that you are considering helping Princess Alice Hospice at this time. If you're going through bereavement and would like to talk to someone about the ways in which we can help, please contact our bereavement service coordinator on 01372 461842.

For some, supporting a charity in memory of a loved one can help with the grieving process. Donating to a cause, or dedicating a fundraising effort can be a good way to celebrate the life and legacy of a loved one. You could also commemorate your loved one with their name on our Giving Dove.

Choose your way to pay tribute

There are several ways that you, your family and friends can donate towards our work – if you have any questions let us know and we’ll be happy to discuss any of them with you.

Set up a JustGiving page and/or organise a fundraising event

This is an easy way for friends and family to make donations, the JustGiving page can stay up for as long as you wish, so people can continue donating in the future. Or you could organise your own fundraising event in memory of your loved one – download our Miles of Memories or Sounds for Pounds guide to get you started.

Tribute Fund 

If you’ve lost someone special to you, one of our Tribute Funds is a wonderful way to celebrate their life, while helping us to support other families when they need it most.

As your own special tribute, this online page can become a place of comfort to visit at any time or place, in order to help you remember and reflect. You can do many things including posting stories, favourite pictures, videos and memories, or lighting a candle. You can also collect donations if you want to fundraise in memory of your loved one.

Anyone can contribute and, however you choose to donate – sponsored or celebration events, a regular gift, a JustGiving page or whatever works for you – it all adds to the same fund, allowing you to see just how much has been raised for the hospice in memory of your loved one.

Light up a Life

Every year, we hold our annual Light up a Life service. It is a beautiful and moving occasion for families and friends to share memories and make dedications to their loved ones.  You will be able to see our spectacular Tree of Light being switched on, covered in hundreds of lights – each one an uplifting reminder of someone special and have the opportunity to include your loved one’s name in our Book of Dedications.

If you would like to be invited to our Light up a Life service this year, and have the opportunity to include your loved one’s name in the Book of Dedications, please complete this form.

If you would like to watch last year’s service and view our Book of Dedications please visit this page.

You can remember the life of a loved one – at any time – by leaving a message and maybe a photo on our ‘Make memories live on’ memory wall.
