Giving In Memory

How to donate in memory of a loved one

Join our Daisy Chain

By joining our Daisy Chain you become a link in a strong chain which will support the hospice for years to come.

We depend on charitable donations to keep going. It may surprise you that we receive less than a third of our costs from government and have to raise the rest.

By joining our Daisy Chain in memory of your loved one you help to ensure that the care we provide is here for many years to come.

You can sign up to be a member of our Daisy Chain in return for a regular donation of any amount.

Join the Daisy Chain



We are thrilled that Wigan Warrior Sam Powell and wife Ria are backing our Daisy Chain campaign. By joining our Daisy Chain, you become part of our network, making a difference to the lives of people across Wigan and Leigh. The essential services we offer are only possible because of a network of people working together to make a difference. By becoming part of our Daisy Chain, you become part of the vital network that keeps our hospice going.

You may want to do this because the hospice has supported someone you know, and as a member of our Daisy Chain you can choose to have a daisy planted in our remembrance garden in their memory.

Read more about how the hospice cared for Ria's Auntie Diane and how the family have supported us since.


Light for a Life

At Wigan and Leigh Hospice we run our annual Light for a Life appeal from October until the twelfth night after Christmas. Every year thousands of people choose to remember their loved one by dedicating a light on our beautiful tree.

Sponsor a Christmas Tree

Every December we fill our gardens with sparkling Christmas trees.

In 2022 some 80 beautiful trees were available to sponsor. Each tree features a plaque with a message of your choice or can include a message and logo from a business.

At the same time you’ll be giving the gift of Christmas to patients living with life-limiting or terminal illnesses.

Please contact us to discuss sponsoring a tree by emailing: or call us on 01942 524203


Create on online In Memory page

You can create an in memory page on JustGiving where you can tell the story of the person you’re remembering using words, photos and video and explain why you’re raising money in their memory. Your friends and family can give to your page easily, safely and securely, wherever and whenever they want to. Together you can create a lasting tribute in memory of your loved one.

Much Loved allows you to make an online tribute to someone special and fundraise in their memory. It provides a simple way to publish funeral notices and for collecting donations for your chosen charities.

Contact us

You are welcome to call us about making a dedication in memory of your loved one on 01942525566. Someone will be able to help you Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4.30pm (4pm on Fridays).
