In Memory

A donation In Memory can be a special way to remember and celebrate the life of someone important to you. We know that these gifts have extra meaning and we are always very grateful to receive them.

By donating In Memory to Shooting Star Children’s Hospices you can remember a loved one, whilst knowing you are helping to support families through the toughest of times.

There are a few different ways to donate:

In Memory donation envelopes

If you are organising a funeral or memorial service for a loved one we can provide In Memory donation envelopes which can be personalised with the name of the person you are remembering. These can either be sent directly to you or we can arrange for them to be sent to a funeral director in advance. Contact us on 01932 823100 to request in memory envelopes.

Tribute funds

You can set up tribute fund in the name of someone special to you – a simple yet positive way to celebrate their life and keep memories alive. It’s quick and easy to do and friends and family can contribute to it in any way they like. Some people choose to donate each year on a special birthday or anniversary with a single donation or even by setting up a direct debit. Others like to run marathons or organise community events like cake sales. Whatever you choose we will be here to support you and help you build your personalised tribute fund.
