Leaving A Gift In Memory
Giving in memory is a special way to remember a loved one whilst making a valuable contribution to Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity.
You can pay tribute to the memory of someone special in a number of ways. You could make a donation, hold a collection at a funeral or memorial service, set up an online tribute page, collect donations to mark a special date, such as a birthday, or even take part in an event or challenge in their name.
It can be difficult to know how to pay respects to a loved one, but a meaningful and lasting way is by asking friends and family to donate to our charity.
Donations in lieu of flowers at the funeral
A donation in lieu of flowers is a simple and effective way for family and friends to donate in memory of a loved one. If you wish to do this, please speak to the funeral director. They will be able to offer you advice and will pass all donations received onto Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity.
Ask for donations at a funeral or memorial service
Most funeral directors can supply collection boxes to collect donations at a funeral or memorial event. We can also supply them if you get in touch.
Family and friends can also donate by cash or cheque. Please make cheques payable to Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity and clearly state on the back which department that you would like your donation to go towards.
Cheques can be posted to:
