Remembering a Loved One With St Gemma’s

Remembering a loved one is very special and personal. There are many ways in which you can remember and honour a loved one at St Gemma’s Hospice.  Your gift will help us to continue providing vital care and support to local people with life limiting illnesses. Every gift in memory makes a valued contribution.


For further information about supporting St Gemma’s Hospice in memory of someone special please call us on 0113 218 5555.

The Tree of Life is situated in the memory garden at the Hospice. Hand-engraved copper leaves hang on the Tree of Life, each dedicated to a loved one. Leaves are available for a donation towards the work of St Gemma’s Hospice.

Sponsoring a day of care is a wonderful way to commemorate a special anniversary or birthday. We will display a framed certificate in reception bearing the name of your loved one on the day you have sponsored. You can sponsor a day of care for £350.

The Walls of Light are situated along the Path of Life Garden at the Hospice. The walls are built with glass bricks, each bearing the name of someone special. Bricks are available to sponsor for a donation of £500.

The Celebration of Life Appeal is a way of remembering and celebrating the life of someone you love. Hundreds of Celebration of Life markers, each bearing the name of someone special, will be planted along the Path of Life at St Gemma’s Hospice, creating a field of memories. More details about the Celebration of Life Appeal will be available in April.

Sometimes people prefer to request donations instead of, or in addition to, having flowers at a funeral. We can provide donation envelopes and personalised collection boxes.

Taking place each December, the Light up a Life Appeal provides an opportunity to dedicate a light and pay tribute to someone special. Thousands of lights shine on special trees, each light in memory of someone we love. More details about our Light up a Life Appeal will be available in the preceding October.
