Fundraise in Memory

We recognise the special significance of fundraising or making a donation in memory of a loved one. There are lots of different ways you can support the hospice in celebration and remembrance of someone's life.

Ways to Fundraise in Memory

Tribute Funds

We understand that the loss of somebody close is a deeply personal experience. Tribute funds are a unique way to make a lasting tribute to a loved one and for many people, supporting a cause by concentrating your time and effort into keeping a memory alive can help with loss.

You can set up a tribute fund in the name of your loved one and, as it is personal to you, you have the choice of how and when it is added to. Your gifts, and those of your family and friends who can also be invited to contribute, will help us continue to care for people with life-limiting illnesses whilst at the same time act as lasting tribute to your loved one. Click here to find out more.

Organise a Fundraising Event

Organising your own fundraising event is a great way to fundraise in memory of your loved one, and is a really fun way to support the hospice. Our community fundraising team will provide you with support, advice and assistance with your event, and are also happy to provide ideas on the many types of fun events you could hold. Please click here to tell us about your organised event & let us know if you require any fundraising materials!

Take on a Challenge

Step up to the challenge, achieve something amazing and raise money in memory of your loved one. 

Throughout the year, we advertise local challenge events such as half and full marathons, 5k and 10k runs, triathlons, treks etc. which you are invited to sign up to in the hope that you will raise vital funds to support the care we provide to local people. In the current climate, a lot of the challenge event have gone virtual, offering you the chance to take on a challenge in your own time and at your own pace. 

The Tree of Life

Our Tree of Life is a beautiful, handcrafted metal sculpture located in the hospice's main reception that allows personalised engraved leaves to be added to the branches to create a stunning and poignant lasting collection of memories and special messages. The tree represents the beauty of life, enduring strength and eternal peace.

Leaves can be dedicated in memory of a loved one, to express thanks, as a gift, to show support to the hospice or simply with your own name or personal message. Click here to find out more.

Funeral Collections

If you'd like to ask friends and family for donations to Bolton Hospice in lieu of flowers at a loved one’s funeral we have specially designed in memory collection envelopes that will also enable us to claim the gift aid on these donations. If you would like a supply of these envelopes, please call the fundraising office on 01204 663 065 or email us.
