Give in memory

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a positive way of commemorating a life.

Your gift will help us to find the cures and treatments to beat heart and circulatory diseases forever. 

Create a Gift of Hope fund

A Gift of Hope fund is 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.
