Donate in Memory
Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way of celebrating the life of someone special and helps Woodlands to continue to provide specialist care to our patients, their families and carers. There are a number of ways you can support us in celebration and remembrance of someone’s life.
The Tree of LifeOur Tree of Life is situated in our main reception and is a beautiful sculpture which allows people to add an engraved leaf onto one of the branches for a minimum donation, or amount raised in a year, of £1,000. The continuous growth of leaves on our Tree of Life, each with its own special message, reflects its popularity and it has become a source of comfort to so many people.
The family of Jo Horricks, who added a leave to the tree said:
“As a family the leaf is a fitting memorial to our mum who never wanted a grand remembrance, but who preferred the smaller more personal things in life. The Tree of Life in Woodlands, a place that cared for her so well in her final days, is so fitting. Woodlands and the wonderful staff eased the family through the pain of our loss and continue to do so. The family take great comfort that we can and do return often to read the leaf and remember in such pleasant surroundings.”
Funeral CollectionsAsking friends and family to donate at a funeral instead of flowers, is a lasting and meaningful way to remember your loved one, and will help us to be there for more patients and families in the future.
We can supply you with donation envelopes that you can give out at the funeral or memorial service that family and friends can use to make private donations. By using our donation envelopes, we are able to claim Gift Aid, meaning that your donation could be worth an additional 25% more (if applicable).
Forget Me Not CampaignOur Forget Me Not flowers are a beautiful way to remember and celebrate a loved one. The individually hand-crafted flowers are made from durable steel and will be an enchanting addition to your garden. To find out more about donating in this way, please click here.
Light up a LifeEach year Woodlands invites people to remember the life of someone special to them by dedicating a light in their memory at one of the Hospice’s Light Up a Life ceremonies. It’s a chance to come together and remember friends and family who are no longer with us. If you would like to sponsor a light in memory or find out more about the services please visit our Light Up a Life page here.
