Giving in memory of a loved one is a special way to remember and celebrate their life.  

You may wish to make a one-off gift or ask for donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral. At a later date, you may wish to donate to commemorate the birthday or anniversary of a loved one or take on a challenge in their memory. 

However you choose to remember your loved one, your generous donation will make a real difference for generations to come.

Thanks to your support we’re able to go beyond the scope of the NHS by funding state-of-the-art equipment, pioneering research and improvements to our hospitals and community services that make them more welcoming for patients and their families. 

Below are just some examples of how you can give in memory of a loved one. To discuss this further, contact the team.

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. 

For ideas, visit our Get Involved and Events pages.
