We can’t thank you enough for considering giving to NorthCare Charity in celebration of your loved one’s life. Fundraising or making a donation is a meaningful way to pay tribute to your loved one, and make a lasting difference at the same time.

Sam Geddes and Dylan Kiss started fundraising for NorthCare Charity in memory of Dylan’s mum, Michelle Kiss, who died during the Manchester Arena incident in 2017.

“Dylan and I have hosted charity events to fundraise for NorthCare, including charity golf days, as I supported Dylan to use golf as an outlet whilst he was grieving, getting him through the tough times and giving him something to focus on. Playing golf and planning fundraising events together got us through the grief and gave us the opportunity to get away from the outside world.”

“We chose to fundraise for NorthCare because Salford Royal Hospital dealt with the aftermath of the bombing, and we both feel we have been able to contribute to life saving equipment and improving the hospital experience for patients, visitors and staff.

“Fundraising in memory of Michelle has given us a chance to be part of history, with a cause very close to our hearts.”

Donating in memory of a loved one means you can have a lasting impact on our vital work for years to come.

Your donation is used wherever there is greatest need across our hospitals and community services. However, if you would like your donation to benefit a particular hospital, ward or department, please contact the team.

Arranging a funeral collection is a special way for family and friends to support your NHS in memory of a loved one. Funeral collections can be made in lieu of family flowers or include a collection in a service. 

The funeral director will usually arrange the collection on your behalf and will make sure any donations are forwarded to us at NorthCare Charity, Chatsworth House, Roach Bank Rd, Bury, BL9 8RN. You can also pay in your collection online.

Family and friends may wish to take part in an activity, challenge or event to honour the memory of their loved one. 

Whether its running, cycling or completing an obstacle course, there are plenty of options for you.
