Giving in memory of a loved one is a special way to remember and celebrate their life.

Whether you have lost someone recently or some time ago, we are here to listen and support you. Whether you want to give something back to our hospitals, or support a cause that really mattered to them, we are here to help.

Tree of Memories

Our Tree of Memories is a beautful way to honour someone you love. Situated along one of the main corridors at Calderdale Royal Hospital, the beautiful Lilac Tree incorporates 450 leaves of gold, silver and bronze that can be engraved with a name or a short personal message in return for a donation.

Leaves will remain on the tree for a set period of time. After this, you will be invited to renew your donation and keep your leaf on the tree. Or we can send it to you for you to keep and cherish forever. 

  • BRONZE - £100 donation. The leaf will remain on the tree for one year
  • SILVER - £200 donation. The leaf will remain on the tree for two years
  • GOLD - £300 donation The leaf will remain on the tree for three years

We are very happy to have launched our Tree of Memories in August 2022, with guest speaker Brendan Brown, Cheif Executive of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. 

We would like to say a massive thank you to Claudia Ashley-Brown from Perspexangel for providing the beautiful tree.
