Give in Memory

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a positive way of commemorating a life, while supporting our vital work in the fight against heart disease.

Create a Gift of Hope fund

Gift of Hope funds are a unique and positive way of celebrating the life of your loved one and supporting our ground-breaking research.

They are an opportunity to set up an ongoing fund as a permanent tribute to honour your beloved. When you create your fund page you can personalise it with a photo and your own words, as well as using the diary, visitors' book and photo album to share your memories. Please take a look at our Gift of Hope website to donate to an existing fund or to create your own.

Make a one off donation
