Many of the wonderful donations we receive are made in memory of someone close. Gifts in memory are such a special and meaningful way to remember a loved one- honouring their life while also supporting local babies, children, young people and families affected by life-threatening and life-limiting conditions. We are incredibly touched and grateful to receive these gifts.

To donate please donate online, call our Supporter Care Team on 01509 638 049, or send a cheque (made payable to Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People) to:

Supporter Care
Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People
Lark Rise

Other ways you can support Rainbows in memory of a loved one, include setting up a Much Loved page or donating in lieu of flowers.

Sadly, flowers last a short amount of time, but donating in this way at a funeral or memorial service gives family and friends a way to pay tribute to their loved one and make a difference at the same time.

We will gladly help by providing collection envelopes for you to use on the day. These make it easy for friends and family to donate and include the option to Gift Aid to make their gift worth even more for Rainbows.

To find out more, please email our Supporter Care Team or call 01509 638 049.

Tribute Funds

Tribute funds allow you to create a lasting memory of your loved one, celebrate their life and those special memories, while supporting Rainbows.

As part of your Tribute Fund you will receive a special online Tribute page, a dedicated space for comfort, remembrance and reflection where you can share memories, photographs, videos and music with family and friends, wherever they may be. Contributions can also safely be made directly to your Tribute Fund.

Once open, you can contribute to your Tribute Fund as often as you like, sharing it with your loved ones to grow your tribute fund together. There are many ways to grow your Tribute Fund:

  • Donating to remember a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary
  • Funeral collections
  • Setting up a regular gift
  • Participating in an Rainbows event
  • Organising your own event
