A Tribute Fund is a simple and lasting way to remember a loved one.

A Tribute Fund is a simple way to record and share the total that has been donated to Wakefield Hospice in memory of your loved one. Bereavement is one of the hardest things anyone has to face, and finding a positive and lasting way to remember your loved one can be of great comfort at such a difficult time.
 
A Tribute Fund can be a wonderful way to honour someone special and celebrate their life. Every pound raised for their Tribute Fund will help care for patients and their families.
 
Funds raised in memory of loved ones make a big difference to the hospice, helping to run the hospice’s Day Therapy Unit, inpatient ward and bereavement service.    
 
You can grow your Tribute Fund how and when you like. You may wish to donate on special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, take part in hospice events or fundraise independently. Friends and family can view and contribute to the Tribute Fund from anywhere in the world. There's no minimum or maximum amount to raise, and no time limit.
 
You can set up a Tribute Fund by creating a ‘Someone Special’ page on the Virgin Money Giving website or an ‘In Memory’ page on the Just Giving website. You can add a photo and story about your loved one, and friends and family can leave messages with their donations. Alternatively you can create a simple Tribute Fund on the Wakefield Hospice website. For details about setting up a Tribute Fund please call the fundraising team on 01924 331405.
