Create a Tribute Page for your loved one

“We find great comfort in looking back through the photo’s on Lizzie’s page” – Julia and Tricia, sisters of Lizzie.

A tribute fund is a space for friends and family to come together and share pictures, stories and memories while raising money for us.

Each tribute fund is as unique as the person whose life it celebrates. And each fund, no matter how big or small, will help Hospice in the Weald care for more people with a terminal illness and provide support to their families.

Give a regular gift in their memory

You could choose to support us by making a regular donation in memory of someone either monthly, quarterly or annually. Many supporters do this to remember an anniversary or birthday of someone special. If you have any questions, please contact 01892 820533 or

Hospice in the Weald Pembury building

Donate to Hospice in the Weald in lieu of flowers at a funeral or memorial service

You may want to ask your family and friends to donate to Hospice in the Weald instead of flowers at a funeral or memorial service. We can provide you with our collection pots or donation envelopes. Contact 01892 820533 or for more information.

Alternatively, you may wish to speak with your Funeral Director who will be able to accept cheques and cash donations on our behalf.  We usually receive these 4-6 weeks after the funeral and will send you an acknowledgement to notify and thank you for the total amount raised in your loved one’s memory.

Memory Orchard leaf

Arrange a lasting tribute with a Memory Orchard leaf

You might like to remember your loved one with a lasting tribute in the Memory Orchard in the beautiful Hospice gardens. Our stunning Memory Orchard tree sculpture has copper leaves which are engraved with the name of your loved one and a personal inscription. Over time, the copper will age with Verdigris, to form a leaf that is as unique as the person you are remembering.

For a suggested donation of £120, your leaf will hang on the tree for a year before you have the option to renew it for another year, or have it sent home to you in a special presentation box. Every leaf engraved with the name of someone special will not only create a unique personal tribute but will also support current patients and their families make the most of precious moments together.

For more information on the Memory Orchard, please contact  01892 820 533 or
