When a loved one passes away, many people choose to ask for donations to the hospital instead of flowers at the funeral. This is a lovely way to do something positive at a difficult time. You can arrange this through your funeral directors or you can send the donations directly to us here at the hospital.
Some people like to set up an online tribute to their loved one using www.justgiving.com or an alternative provider that will be arranged by your funeral director. This allows you to share memories and thoughts in addition to making donations. You can even keep the fund open and ask people to donate to the tribute fund in honour of your loved one. People often do this on birthdays and anniversaries.
Leaving a gift in your Will is really straightforward and it gives you the chance to make a lasting difference.
Just like our doctors and nurses, you will be helping people at a time when they need it the most. Our legacy leaflet, which you can download below, has all the information you need. If you would like to speak to somebody about leaving a gift in your Will, please contact Yeovilhospitalcharity@somersetft.nhs.uk or call on 01935 383020.
