Collections At Funerals

When planning the funeral of a loved one, you may decide to ask for donations to be made to UHCW Charity instead of flowers. These details should be of assistance:

Funeral Notice

We suggest two alternatives:

'donations in lieu of flowers  to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity'

'donations in lieu of flowers to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity in support of  XXX'

inplace of XXX put the ward or service you would like your donation to benefit


Donations should be made payable to University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity or UHCW Charity. In a covering letter let us know what ward or service the donations are to benefit.


Donation envelopes
We can provide you with donation envelopes to distribute at a service, or to family and friends.  this gives people all the details they need to make a donation, and enables us to thank them for the  gift they make  in memory of your loved one. 

If they choose to they can increase the value of their donation through Gift Aid, at no extra cost to them - helping us to achieve even more.  

Collection Boxes
Some families prefer to take a collection box, so people can make donations when they retire from the service. We can  put a photo or the name of your loved one onto the collection box. 

To arrange for  any of these materials contact us on 02476 966059

Paying your donation to us

Donations should be sent to:

UHCW Charity
Main Reception
University Hospital
Clifford Bridge Road

Please do not send your  donations to a ward or service and never send  cash through the post.
