In memory giving

We are here to support you however you choose to give in memory of someone special.

Lots of families choose to celebrate the life of a friend or family member by making a donation in their memory. Your family could decide to commemorate a loved one by collecting donations at funeral services, sometimes instead of buying flowers.

Alternatively, you might like to remember them by holding an event to raise money for charity or setting up a regular gift donation to help make Sheffield Children's Hospital even better. 

Funeral collections 

If you decide to ask for donations to The Children’s Hospital Charity in lieu of flowers in memory of a loved one we will help you along the way.

By holding a funeral collection you’ll make sure your loved one’s memory lives on through the work of The Children’s Hospital Charity. Together we can ensure Sheffield Children’s Hospital remains at the forefront of paediatric care.

Arranging donations at a funeral is very easy. You can use our donation envelopes to collect money or transfer the collection to us using a BACS payment. By using our donation envelopes you can raise an extra 25% through Gift Aid.

  • How does it work?

    We want you to be as comfortable as possible when collecting in memory of a loved one. We can provide collection envelopes making it easy for friends and family to donate at a funeral or memorial service, or we can send you a cardboard collection box.  

  • What happens after the service

    You can return Gift Aid envelopes to The Children’s Hospital Charity either directly or you may prefer to ask the funeral director to collect them and send them to the charity on your behalf.

  • What information should I include?

    Please ensure that you tell us the name of the person the donations are in memory of and your relationship to them.

  • What happens to the donations?

    Thanks to the generosity of donors, The Children’s Hospital Charity is able to fund enhancements at Sheffield Children’s Hospital which are over and above the NHS provision.
