A donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to observe and celebrate their life.
If you are considering making a donation to us in memory of someone special, we are truly grateful for such a kind and thoughtful gift. It will help us to provide the best possible end of life care to people in your neighbourhood.
To make a donation to us, you can simply click on the Just Giving link www.justgiving.com/hokh which will take you through to our JustGiving page. When you click on the donate button to make your donation you can leave a special message, which you can share with friends and family. Please be sure to let us know the name of the person you are remembering.
Alternatively, you can set up your own JustGiving page in memory of a loved one. Simply log on to JustGiving, search for Heart of Kent Hospice, then click select and choose In memory. You can leave special messages, share the page with your friends and family and fundraise over time.
Sometimes we need a lasting tribute to our loved ones that we can see and hold.
Our Memory tree is a beautiful, hand-crafted, copper tree which sits in a peaceful area of the Hospice gardens, surrounded by attractive trees, shrubs and flowers. Every copper leaf and flower on the tree is dedicated to the memory of a family member, partner or friend. They remain a wonderful and enduring tribute to those lives we want to remember and celebrate.
For a donation, you can dedicate one of these lasting mementoes to someone you hold dear, whether they have been a patient with us or not. The leaf or flower will be engraved with their name and placed on the tree, which you can visit as often as you wish.
You will have the choice of placing your leaf or flower on the Memory tree for one, two or five years, after which time we will send it to you in a special presentation box. Or if you prefer we can arrange to send your newly engraved leaf or flower to your home, to keep where it can be seen and held every day.
Know that when you dedicate a leaf or flower in memory of your loved one, you will be helping to raise vital funds for Heart of Kent Hospice, enabling us to help more patients and their families.
