You can pay tribute to a loved one and say thank you for the care given by our doctors and nurses by making a donation to St Helena.
Many people kindly request donations to us in lieu of flowers at a funeral. If you’d like to do this we can provide you or your funeral director with our ‘timeless memories’ envelopes to collect donations. You can contact our Fundraising Team between 9.00am and 5.00pm Monday to Friday on 01206 931468.
We also welcome donations made online either as a one off or direct debit.
You can also make donations over the phone by calling our Fundraising team on 01206 931468 or you can send donations to them. If donating via post we recommend sending a cheque rather than cash. Our Fundraising team can be visited or written to at Units 1 and 4 The Atrium, Phoenix Square, Wyncolls Road, Colchester CO4 9AS.
We can also help provide you with further inspiration to help us while remembering a loved one by visiting our fundraise in memory page.
Our Timeless Tribute Funds can be set up online in your loved one’s name as a wonderful way to honour their memory and bring comfort to you. They are an online memorial space where you, your friends and family can share photos, videos and memories as well as a place where you can support us to continue our work for the benefit of other local people by making donations.
You can dedicate a leaf to a loved one on our stunning Memory Tree located in the beautiful reception of The Hospice at Myland Hall. This is a special way to remember a loved one and at the same time help St Helena.
The Memory Tree is a hand-carved oak trunk with branches and 500 bronze, silver and gold coloured leaves. Each leaf can be engraved with the name of a loved one as a lasting tribute to their memory. You can choose whether to display your dedicated leaf on the wall for one, two, or three years. Please see below for our suggested donation amounts.
At the end of the display period, you will be given the option to renew your dedicated leaf or have it returned for you to keep.
If you would like to be present when your engraved leaf is added to the tree, we invite you to do so. After you have made your dedication, please feel free to contact us so we can arrange a date and time convenient to you. Please note, this is optional, you do not have to be in attendance if you’d prefer not to.
