Memory Tree

Remember a loved one by leaving a lasting tribute on our memory tree.

With the generous support of Darlington Building Society we created a special memory tree within our In Patient Unit at the Woodlands. You are invited to leave a lasting tribute to a loved one, whether or not they were cared for by the Hospice. In return for a suggested minimum donation of £120 per year, your engraved leaf will be added to our memory tree for 12 months.

Kindly sponsored by

As part of Darlington Building Society’s 160th anniversary celebrations they raised funds for charities across the region they serve. In this time they raised £35,000 for St Teresa’s Hospice which paid for a room in our In Patient Unit to be completed and fully equipped, and allowed us to establish our Memory Tree.

To leave a lasting tribute to a loved one please complete the payment form below. Upon receipt of your payment, we will send you a letter of acknowledgement and a certificate which will show your chosen wording. You will then have 14 days in which to request a correction, if required, before the leaf is engraved. The letter will also tell you when your leaf will be added to the tree (subject to any further revisions).

Once your leaf is added to the memory tree you will be invited to view this in your own time – all we ask is that you let us know in advance that you plan to visit.

After one year you will be sent a letter of renewal, at which point you can choose to leave the engraved leaf on the memory tree for another year or request to have it posted to you. 

If you would like to have more than one leaf engraved, or if you have any queries, please contact us on 01325 254321 or at [email protected] 

Please note: When selecting your leaf colour please number 1 to 3, 1 being your first choice. We will do all we can to allocate your preferred colour, subject to availability.

Terms and conditions:

St Teresa’s Hospice reserves the right to approve all wording and refuse any considered unsuitable.

All leaves remain the property of St Teresa’s Hospice until you choose not to renew its place on the memory tree, and we reserve the right to move or re-locate the leaves and the memory tree, if necessary.

Any amendments to the engraving provided on this order form must be made within 14 days of receipt of the acknowledgement letter to be effected.

After one year you will be sent a letter of renewal, at which point you can choose to leave the engraved leaf on the memory tree for another year or request to have it posted to you.
