Many people choose to support Northern Ireland Hospice in memory of someone they love and in recognition of the high-quality compassionate care we provide.
There are various ways you can give in memory of that special someone:
- Donations in lieu of flowers at your loved one's funeral – simply collecting donations instead of flowers at a funeral can help to support local people living with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. We offer a range of materials to help, from funeral collection envelopes, cardboard collection boxes and pin badges.
- Tribute Fund - setting up a Tribute Fund can provide a lasting and poignant tribute to a loved one. Any fundraising in their memory can be coordinated through the fund, from organising a walk to holding a coffee morning.
When your Tribute Fund has reached £1,000 a plaque with your loved one’s name will be placed on a butterfly sculpture in the Woodland Trust’s Monkstown Wood and you will be invited to a special Remembrance Service in the spring during which a single tree will be planted in memory of all of those who have passed away at Hospice.
Northern Ireland Hospice Book of Remembrance - Our Book of Remembrance is a beautifully presented handmade book in which your loved one's name can be entered providing a lasting tribute to them. Each day it is opened at the appropriate date. It can bring a little comfort to view the book on special occasions such as a loved one's birthday or anniversary.
