Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice

A Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice Tribute Fund is a positive and simple way for family and friends to honour and remember a loved one.

Increasingly, more and more people have decided to remember someone special by choosing to give a gift to The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice in their name. These are deeply personal and meaningful gifts and as such are very important to the hospice.

To recognize the special nature of these gifts, we set up Tribute Funds.

 

WHAT IS A TRIBUTE FUND?

Often people want to do something positive in memory of their loved one. Finding a lasting way to remember a loved one can be a great comfort. A tribute fund gives you a way to do that, in a way that suits you. Family, friends and colleagues can join together in honour of someone special, whilst raising vital funds for The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice.

 

HOW TRIBUTE FUNDS WORK

The fund is named after your loved one, and you and anyone else can contribute in any way that feels right. For example, a family member might recognise a birthday or anniversary by asking for donations instead of gifts, whilst a former colleague may choose to run a marathon and raise sponsorship in their memory.
