In Memory donations
Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a way of celebrating the life of someone special and helps the hospice to continue with the very special care we provide to our patients, their families and carers.
There are a few ways of making an in memory donation:
Often families choose to request donations to the hospice in lieu of flowers at the funeral. Speak to your funeral director about our in memory envelopes which enable us to claim an additional 25% gift aid on each donation in memory of your loved one. These donations also allow us to thank everyone who makes a donation personally.
Cheques can be made payable to Wirral Hospice St John’s and your funeral directors will forward all donations to Wirral Hospice St John’s, alternatively if you would like to drop donations off at the Hospice the Fundraising Office is on the Hospice site and open Monday – Friday 9-5.

Throughout the year Wirral Hospice St John’s hold two memorial campaigns, so that our supporters remember all those that have passed:
Our Summer Memories campaign encourages the Wirral community to sponsor a flower in memory of their loved ones. These artificial flowers are then displayed in bright yellow wheelbarrows in the hospice gardens for visitors to see during August, and then on the first week of September the flowers are made available for collection by all those who have sponsored them.
Light up a Life
Our Light up a Life campaign has been running for over 20 years and brings together our supporters from across the globe in remembrance of their loved ones through the sponsorship of the lights in the trees around the hospice. These lights are turned on during a service on the first Sunday of December and light up the hospice grounds until the twelfth day after Christmas.
