Light Up a Life candles

Remember and celebrate a loved one’s life by supporting Treetops Hospice Care.

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.


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 Victoria Sumner – inmemory@treetopshospice.org.uk – 0115 949 1264 – to request your envelopes.


Create a JustGiving In Memory page

You can create your own online giving or fundraising pages in memory of a loved one at our JustGiving page.

You can use your In Memory page to tell the story of the person you’re remembering and explain why you’re raising money in their memory, using words, photos and videos. This is also an easy and secure way for friends and family to leave messages and donate.


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.
