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.

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.

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.

Thank you to everyone who dedicated one of these limited-edition handcrafted iron flowers in memory of a loved one.. Each Forever Flower is a lovely, colourful keepsake for our 40th Anniversary year.

Sometimes people prefer to request donations instead of, or in addition to, having flowers at a funeral.

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.
