Donate in memory

Many people now choose to remember a loved one by making a donation in memory of that special person

Here at Mary Stevens Hospice we know as well as anyone that losing someone you love is one of the hardest things you will ever have to experience.

Honouring that special person by making a donation in their memory is a valuable and positive way of celebrating their life, whilst helping Mary Stevens Hospice to continue making every day count for the people who need us most.

Funeral Donations

If your loved one has requested they would like Mary Stevens Hospice to be included in their funeral, please contact the Fundraising Office or inform the funeral director responsible and we will ensure that you are provided with donation envelopes and anything else that you may require.

You can contact the Fundraising Office on 01384 377 778. These donations help to fund the vital care that we provide to individuals within the local community who have a life shortening illness.

Glass Giving Tree

A place to remember and honour the life and memory of a loved one

The glass leaves fill the area with a multitude of colours, making the space bright and welcoming for all who visit . The tree offers a place to come and honour, reflect and remember as each leaf is engraved with a special dedication, completely personal for each family and their loved one.

Give in celebration

Are you celebrating something special this year and would like the Hospice to be a part of your celebrations?

Many people ask for donations to the Hospice, instead of a gift, and we can make this process very simple.

We have special donation envelopes that we can send out to you, or we can support you by designing something individual for your special day. If you would like more information please call the Fundraising Office on 01384 377 778 or email

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a way to help you make the money you raise and donate go further, at no extra cost to you. It’s a scheme run by the Government, that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound that is donated.

So, for example, if you donated £100 to Mary Stevens Hospice today, it means that you’ll actually be giving us £125.

Giving under Gift Aid means that so much more money can be raised at no extra cost to our supporters. So, if you’re a UK taxpayer, click here to download the Gift Aid form, or tick the Gift Aid box when you donate online.
