Remembering someone special


Donating to our hospital’s charity in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way to celebrate their life and support the hospital that cared for them. If you're interested in making an "In Memoriam" donation or setting up a collection at a funeral, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. Our team are here to help you every step of the way.

Families and friends

Making a donation or raising funds to support the hospital area that cared for your loved one is a touching way to keep their memory alive. Consider asking friends and family to donate at the funeral service as a lasting and meaningful way to honour the person you have lost.

If you wish to make a donation in memory of a loved one, you can:

  • Create a personalised in memory fundraising page that acts as a tribute to their life – where friends can share memories and make a donation using JustGiving, where you’ll be able to write about your loved one and add photos. You can share the page with friends and family where they can leave messages and an in-memoriam donation.
  • Collect donations at the funeral – we can provide you with charity branded donation box and envelopes for friends and family to make donations at the funeral. You may consider requesting donations instead of flowers. Please contact us to make any of these arrangements. You can also consult with your funeral director who has experience in collecting donations at funerals.
  • Organise an in-memoriam event raising funds for our charity whilst paying tribute to your loved one
  • Make a donation online
  • Give us a call on 01708 774825 to make a donation by card

Adam Shinebroom raises funds for new state of the art equipment in memory of mum


One of our amazing fundraisers, Adam Shinebroom, successfully raised over £13,000 completing a sponsored bike ride from London to Southend. Adam had hoped to raise around £2,500 over six weeks, however, this was already topped within just four hours of setting up the fundraising page! Inspired by the wonderful care his mother, Hazel, received, Adam chose to fundraise for our charity.

Hazel fell ill and was admitted to Queen's Hospital in May 2020, where her condition rapidly deteriorated, leaving her bedridden. The Neuro Rehab Team provided much of Hazel's care, but sadly, she passed away later that year. Hazel’s family remains grateful to the Neuro Rehab Team, who used the funds to purchase a de-weighting system called the LiteGait. This system enables patients to engage in challenging functional activities like standing, balancing, and walking. The overhead straps, individually tailored, offer support for upright positioning, postural control, and easy lifting, aiding those unable to support themselves.

Adam and his family visited the Neuro Rehab Team at Queens to see the new piece of equipment, with a demonstration provided by Richard Pennington, former Chief Operating Service Officer for Elective Surgery at BHRUT.

Give in Memory

We understand that this is a challenging time for you and your loved ones. However, we hope that contributing through donations to make a difference for other patients can bring some comfort to you and your family.
