Give in memory

Many people find comfort in donating in memory of their loved ones. There are various ways to do this.

If you would like to ask for donations to John Taylor Hospice in lieu of flowers, your funeral director should be able to help you with the practicalities.

You can ask your funeral director to collect cash and cheques on your behalf or ask them to set up an online page through donation websites such as JustGiving.

Some families choose to mark a special date by taking part in an event or organising their own memorial.

Supporters have taken part in challenges, held coffee mornings or parties or even staged concerts to mark special dates and raise money to support our care.

Setting up a personalised tribute web page gives you the opportunity to include your favourite photographs, a written tribute and other messages.

Both JustGiving and MuchLoved offer you the opportunity to raise money for John Taylor Hospice in memory.

This annual event takes place in December and offers families a chance to donate to the hospice in memory of their loved ones and to come together in a special event with music, readings and a moment of silence.

We’ll bring you the date of our 2019 Light up a Life event shortly.

What our patients think

“I’d have really struggled without them”

“They’ve been ever so good to me and that’s why I wanted to fundraise and do something to help just like they’ve helped me.”

Philomena Sharpe

“The impact they had will never be forgotten”

“The community nurses were so helpful and they’re lovely people. They put my mind at rest and it’s such a comfort to know you’re not on your own.”

Jackie Day

“An angel sent into my life”

“I can’t thank Angie (patient and family support worker) enough for everything she’s done for us. She’s so reliable and professional – a wonderful person. She took away all these worries and was there for me in my time of need.”

Patricia Smith-Evans

“I’ve really enjoyed it”

“The FAB Programme has helped me to get fitter and my walking is better. Everyone is really nice at the hospice, they’re friendly and they’re good company. I’d recommend it to anyone who is in a similar situation to me.”
