Giving in memory

Many people like to give in memory to the Hospice as their way of donating, but also to pay tribute to a special person in their life. Giving in memory of a loved one is a truly wonderful way of celebrating their life.


Ways to donate in memory

There are a number of ways you can donate as a tribute to your loved ones and your contributions are incredibly important to us - thank you.

Special occasion envelopes & collection boxes

At the time of a funeral, families often request donations to the Hospice in lieu of flowers.

Special occasion envelopes and collection boxes are available, making it easy to donate with gift aid at a funeral, memorial service, anniversary party or wedding. We will notify you to acknowledge the donations and inform you of the amount raised.

Please telephone the Fundraising team on (0116)231 8431 or email for further information.

Memory tree

Remember your loved one on our memory tree.

In our hospice garden we have a special individually crafted metal tree where families and friends can choose to hang a silver or gold coloured leaf in memory of a loved one.

The leaf can be engraved with a name and personal message. It is a way that you can receive comfort and support as you remember a loved one in our peaceful gardens.

To obtain a leaf, please download a form or complete the form below.

Lasting Tribute

Remember someone precious with a Lasting Tribute and celebrate their life in a very special way.

What is a Lasting Tribute?

  • It’s a website that enables people to support LOROS and commemorate loved ones’ lives by enabling people to make donations at special occasions or fundraising events

  • It keeps memories close and provides somewhere personal to share messages, stories, favourite pictures or videos, and to light a candle or set up a remembrance garden. It’s a place of comfort that is stored centrally so you can visit any time

  • It allows friends and family to honour a loved one’s memory and raises valuable funds to support LOROS. Guests can donate to your lasting tribute instead of giving gifts at birthdays and anniversaries or in lieu of flowers at a funeral

To set up a Lasting Tribute for your loved one, please visit our Tribute page

Light up a Life Event

Attend our Light up a Life event which is held annually in December.

Celebrate the life and love of someone special to you over the Christmas period by dedicating a light on our Hospice Christmas Tree in memory of a loved one.

A wonderful way of truly honouring and remembering that person.

My mum, Marilyn celebrated her 59th birthday in LOROS. With the help of the brilliant nurses and staff we organised a spa morning and a cake. Mum died a week afterwards. We will never forget how special the Hospice made her last birthday.
