Giving In Memory

How to donate in memory of a loved one

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.

Dedicate a Daisy

Remember a loved one by dedicating a beautiful daisy in their memory. Your daisy will be inscribed and placed in our special Trivedi Garden within the hospice gardens or you can take it home with you straight away.

You can also dedicate a daisy to our loved one in our online daisy garden by clicking above.




5000 Lights

Every December we fill our gardens with sparkling Christmas trees.

In 2021 some 60 trees were available to sponsor. Each tree features a plaque with a message dedicated to a loved one 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 incurable illnesses.


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.


Call us

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

Unfortunately, the hospice is currently closed to visits unless they are essential.


Funeral Collection

For further information see our page on organising a funeral collection.

Each gift made in memory is unique and speaks of the love for the person who is being remembered. We are always incredibly grateful to receive these donations.

Thank You
