There are many meaningful ways to give and support Rowans Hospice Charity in memory of a loved one.

Whether you are recently bereaved or were bereaved a while ago, Giving in memory can be a positive way of celebrating and remembering the life of someone special, and in doing so, raising much-needed funds for local Hospice care.

The Charity is very privileged to be chosen and remembered by our community in this special way.

Rowans Hospice provides free care and support to patients, carers and the bereaved, living in Portsmouth and South-East Hampshire, through services provided within the Hospice, through Rowans Living Well Centre and to people in their own homes.

If you wish to donate in memory of someone, find out more below about how you can support in a way that reflects your and your loved one’s wishes.
