In Lieu Of Flowers

Asking for donations to Cynthia Spencer Hospice in place of floral tributes is a very special way of remembering, celebrating and honouring the life of a family member or friend.

Long after flowers have faded, this type of 'in memory' donation will live on in the work the Hospice does to care for people with life-limiting illnesses. For some people this is their way of expressing the caring nature of their loved one whilst helping our charity to make a lasting impact on the lives of others.

Your 'Instead of Flowers' donations can be easily organised. If you are placing a notice of funeral details in the press, you can add a line to say 'Donations to Cynthia Spencer Hospice'.

You can also display our donation envelopes in the crematorium or the church. Please call the fundraising team on 01604 973340 or by emailing and we will either send them straight out to you or arrange for you to pick them up from our fundraising office at Pondwood House, Pondwood Close, Moulton Park, Northampton, NN3 6RT.

When you contact us, please simply let us know:

  • How many envelopes you need
  • The date of the service
  • The name and address to send the envelopes to
  • The name of the person the collection is in memory of
  • Contact details for acknowledgments

We’re here to help so please do not hesitate to contact us.

In order to thank each person who donates (excluding online donations) in memory of your loved one under the new GDPR regulations we now have to ask for consent using these envelopes.

Friends and family can also send cheques directly to us at Pondwood House, Pondwood Close, Moulton Park, Northampton, NN3 6RT adding a note to tell us who the donation is in memory of.

Making donations online 

There are a variety of ways in which people can make online gifts in memory at a funeral.

We will write to a family member of the person being honoured to let them know how much in total has been raised. No individual amounts are ever disclosed.

Your wonderful tribute will be a lasting gift for others.
