Donate now


We know that for many people it’s comforting to join others who have been through a similar experience of loss and bereavement.

By taking part in Light up a Life, not only do you remember your loved ones, but you also raise essential funds for the Martlets Hospice.

In return for a donation you can leave a dedication to your loved one, which will be included in our Book of Remembrance. The Book of Remembrance will be displayed in the Sanctuary at the Martlets Hospice throughout December and will also be available to view on our website. Your gift will help to ensure that we can keep caring for patients and families who need us now and in the future.

If you would like to remember someone special, please click here to tell us to whom you would like to make your dedication, and which event you would like to attend. Or download and print the dedication form which can be found on the right hand side of this page.
