Donating in memory of someone special
Making a donation in memory of a loved one is both a positive way to celebrate a life while helping other families to receive our care when they need it most.

We understand that supporting a charity in memory of someone who has died is very personal to each individual. We hope that some of the options we've shared will provide a meaningful way for you to pay tribute to your loved one, whilst also offering some comfort knowing that by giving in their memory you will be supporting the work of Saint Francis Hospice.

Each year we have a special appeal offering our supporters the chance to dedicate a star in memory of a loved one. As part of this, we host a number of services every Christmas time. These services provide an opportunity for you to join others in remembering the life of a loved one in a special and personal way.

We also offer our supporters the chance to dedicate a star in the sky through our online site. The site illustrates the view from the front of Saint Francis Hospice over the hills towards London. In the Spring/Summer you can also choose from four flowers to plant in the virtual meadow. Whether you choose a star or flower, you can write a special message to the person you love and add their photo.


We have an extensive calendar of events with something to suit all interests. Many people find a challenge such as a run or biking event has a really positive focus.

  • You can even organise your own event in celebration of your loved one.
  • Star Walk is our annual 10km midnight walk for the girls. Many participants choose to dedicate their walk to the memory of someone special, walking with friends and family and tailoring their outfits as a dedication to the person whose life they are celebrating. The evening is both a fun night out and poignant way of remembering the people we miss.
