Setting up a Tribute Page

You might be interested in setting up a Tribute Page, where you can share photos and memories, send to friends and family, people can donate to the hospice and you can even light virtual candles for special occasions and anniversaries. It is really easy to set up and it only takes a few minutes to do it – you can find out more here

Please email our In-Memory colleague, Vinny Moran: vincent.moran@willen-hospice.org.uk or call him on 07883 251288 if anything is unclear or if you need help in any other way. We understand that this is a very difficult time and want to help you in any way we can.

All gifts will really help us to continue to give the best possible care to patients and families going through the hardest time of their lives. Thank you so much for your support.

Willen Hospice’s care touches thousands of local people every year. We give comfort, ease pain and reduce anxiety for patients and their loved ones. Every pound given makes a difference – as it enables us to do more for more people across Milton Keynes when and where they need us. Less than a quarter of our funding comes from the NHS, which means the rest is donated or fundraised for by amazing local people. Which is why your support is so important and so appreciated – from everyone we help, thank you.
