You can make a one-off donation or regular donation to Ashgate Hospicecare in memory of your loved one and in recognition of the care and support they received.
You could also set up an online donation page so that friends and family can donate quickly and easily. Your page can be personalised with photos, video links and your story. Just go to www.justgiving.com/ashgatehospice.Donate now in memory
Instead of giving flowers at the funeral, many people prefer to ask relatives and friends to make a donation to support the work of Ashgate Hospicecare. This is a lovely way to remember a loved one and an effective way to recognise the care and support they received at the Hospice.
We can provide envelopes or collection tins and offer any advice you might need. Your funeral director may be able to handle this on your behalf if you let them know that you would like to support Ashgate Hospicecare.
Our Tree of Life is a symbol of memories. A beautiful array of engraved silver colours emblems will adorn our special tree located in our main reception area. The Tree of Life offers a unique and meaningful way to commemorate a special person in your life or to mark a special occasion, such as an anniversary or a birthday
You can choose from three different emblems, including leaves, apples or doves. Each is designed to recognise by name the generous contributions our supporters make. Your chosen shape can be displayed for a regular donation made via direct debit, of just:
For a leaf
For an apple
For a dove
You are welcome to visit the hospice to come and view your emblem at any time. The leaves, apples or doves will be engraved with your chosen name and then displayed for a minimum period of one year in return for a donation to Ashgate Hospicecare. When you choose to donate by direct debit, in addition to making your own dedication, you could buy one as a unique gift for your friends and family.
A lasting way to honour and celebrate the life of someone is with an Ashgate Hospicecare Tribute Fund.
You can make a regular donation via direct debit, a one-off donation at any time, or you may choose to give every year on a special day, perhaps to commemorate an anniversary or birthday. Every single donation will be added to your special tribute fund. Named after the person you wish to remember, for example "John Smith Ashgate Hospicecare Tribute Fund", you are creating a lasting tribute to them and ensuring that they continue to make a difference even after they have died.
"My son, Alan, was born and lived in Chesterfield all his life. He died of a brain tumour at the young age of 33 years. Alan lived and celebrated his life to the full and throughout his illness he remained positive and incredibly brave. As a tribute to his memory and Alan’s amazing zest for life, I am dedicated to raising money for Ashgate Hospicecare where Alan spent the last few weeks of his life. The opportunity to set up an Ashgate Hospicecare Tribute Fund in Alan's name will help to keep his memory alive and gives me great comfort. It is good to know that future patients and families at Ashgate will benefit because we set up a fund in Alan's name as well as saying a big thank you for the care he received."
Pat Unwin (Alan's mum)
