Leaving A Gift In Memory

Giving in memory is a special way to remember a loved one whilst making a valuable contribution to Derby and 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 and 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 and 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:
