Sometimes, when you least expect it, a memory of your loved one comes back to you. It could be the TV show they loved, the holiday you all enjoyed together or maybe their favourite song will play on the radio.
Setting up an online tribute fund allows you to remember and share these precious memories, while helping us raise money to support our free, specialist care.
If you would like help setting up or finding a Forget-Me-Not Tribute Fund, email or call the Fundraising Department on 01905 763963.
An online Forget-Me-Not Tribute Fund gives you the chance to share those precious memories with others and raise money at the same time. The fund is easy to set up and you can invite those who share your memories to pay their own tributes while helping to raise money from wherever they are in the world.
There’s plenty of space to share stories, photos, videos and even the music they loved. It’s a chance to celebrate and remember a loved one, whilst helping St Richard’s continue its free, specialist care of thousands of patients and their families in Worcestershire each year.
It’s also a way to celebrate important dates and keep all your fundraising progress in one place. You can use your tribute fund to let family and friends know you’re holding a fundraising event in your loved one’s honour and invite them to make a special donation in their memory.
Find an existing tribute fund and leave a message of condolence, or make a donation to our work, and join us in celebrating the life of those special people who are no longer here, but are never forgotten.
Here are some of our most frequently asked questions below:
Your Forget-Me-Not Tribute Fund is a positive way to remember a loved one or friend who has died, whilst supporting St Richard’s Hospice to provide its free, specialist care. It is a web page where family and friends can support the hospice in any way they choose – from making a donation or fundraising for an event, to adding messages, music and video in memory of someone special. Your fund will have its own unique link, for example mary.smith.1970-2011.muchloved.com.
There is no cost for creating a tribute fund. We work together with the MuchLoved Charitable Trust to offer this special service.
It’s easy to set up a tribute fund, all you need is a valid email address. When setting up the fund, you enter the name of the person you are remembering, a photograph of them (if you have one) and a message for display on the fund web page. You can change any of these details at a later date. Your fund will have a unique link which you can share with family and friends.
If you wish, your tribute fund will remain online forever in remembrance of your loved one.
You can control the privacy settings of your tribute fund and set the exact level of restriction you require. How do I share my fund with family and friends?
You can invite family and friends to view your fund by sharing your unique link or by sending them an email through the ‘invite’ setting on your tribute fund page.
Donations are collected through the Charities Aid Foundation and sent directly to St Richard’s Hospice.
During this challenging time, we are doing our utmost to continue caring for the patients and loved ones who need us most.
The way we work has been adapted, with many of our services delivered remotely – such as over the phone, or by video call. And we are working closely with other health care professionals in Worcestershire to share knowledge and expertise at this time.
