Ways to Remember
In tribute to your loved one, you can help us to be there for others who need our care and support.
When organising a memorial or funeral service for a loved one, many people choose to ask for donations to be given in lieu of flowers. This is a lovely way for family and friends to honour the memory of a loved one, and to create a lasting legacy by making a difference to the lives of other people in their name.
Lights of Love
Lights of Love is our annual remembrance service. For many of our community, this is an important moment in the year, a chance to come together with others in a similar situation, to remember their loved one. This year we’re thrilled to be hosting it at the Sheldonian Theatre, a place we can gather together to remember those special people in our lives who are no longer with us. In addition, for those unable to attend in person, we will be streaming the service live online for you to join.
Sobell House Memory Tree
The Sobell House Memory Tree is a beautifully designed artwork, which has been installed at the Hospice, and you are invited to dedicate a leaf on the tree to your loved one. By purchasing a leaf in support of Sobell House, not only will you be honouring the memory of someone close to you, but you will be helping us to care for local families, so they can create their own new memories to cherish.
Forget-me-not tribute pages
Sobell House’s forget-me-not tribute pages provide you with the chance to set up your own special memorial website in tribute to your loved one. You can use it to collect donations for Sobell House in your loved one’s name. It shows you the total amount donated so that over the weeks or years you can continue to see the legacy of your loved one.
Make an online dedication
Make an online dedication in your loved one’s memory. Choose to dedicate a flower or leaf on our Memory Meadow, or a star on our Night Sky.
As the Memory Meadow and Night Sky are virtual you can visit them at any time to see your dedication, which we hope will bring you comfort.
