Donating in memory of a loved one to Treetops Hospice Care is a way of honouring the life of someone special while making a difference to the lives of others. Your gift will help us to provide end of life care and counselling and emotional support for families across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Remembering someone who has died is a very personal thing so we offer a range of different ways to give a gift in memory.

Create a Tribute Fund

A Tribute Fund is a long-lasting way to remember someone special and raise money for Treetops Hospice Care in their memory.

You can create your own unique space to share memories, thoughts and photos of your loved one, celebrating their life and what they mean to you. If you wish, their fund can continue to grow through donations to mark birthdays, anniversaries or special dates – or through fundraising by you, your family and friends.

Whatever you choose to do, this Tribute Fund will create a positive legacy that lives on in your loved one’s name.

Donate online

Donating online is the easiest way to make your gift in memory of a loved one.  You can choose to make a one-off gift or to donate every month. Donate online

Donations at a funeral or special occasion

There are a variety of ways in which people can make gifts in memory at a funeral. Your funeral director will be able to advise you on the different options such as donations to Treetops instead of flowers at the funeral of a loved one.

Our specially printed envelopes, available on request, can be given to friends and relatives to make their own donation. These can be used at a funeral, or to mark a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. Please contact Julie Walker – inmemory@treetopshospice.org.uk – 0115 949 1264 – to request your envelopes.

Take part in an event

Many people like to remember a loved one or help support Treetops by participating in one of our events or completing a Treetops challenge. Alternatively, you can help the hospice by organising or participating in an event or challenge of your own.

Light Up a Life treeLight Up a Life 

Our annual Light up a Life ceremony invites people to dedicate a light on our Christmas tree in memory of a friend or relative at Christmas.

You don’t need to have a link to Treetops to take part. It’s a chance for everyone to remember loved ones in a special way.

Information about this year’s Light Up a Life service and appeal can be found on our events webpage.

Make a Gift in your Will

A gift in their Will to Treetops Hospice Care is a way of remembering a loved one and at the same time helping Treetops to give as many people as possible across Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire a real choice over where they access their care. Whether large or small, gifts left to us in supporters’ Wills are a crucial part of our income and represent an investment in the hospice’s future.
