How to Make a Donation
Why your donation matters
The Nurses Memorial relies on the generous support of donors who wish to help those like nurses who have looked after, helped and cared for others but now require assistance themselves. By choosing to make a donation to us you will be enabling us to help nurses like the nurses discussed below who have greatly appreciated the kindness shown.

We’ve teamed up with www.virginmoneygiving.com – a fundraising website. Virgin Money Giving is 100% not-for-profit, which means more of your donations come to us to help those who need it most.
Leave a Legacy
Gifts in Wills and Legacies are hugely important in maintaining and developing our work. If you are considering leaving a legacy to a nursing charity you have an assurance that monies left to the Nurses Memorial will be used to support nurses in need. A Will gives you the opportunity to specify how your estate should be divided and who should benefit. Speak to a solicitor or for more background on on wills and legacies visit www.rememberacharity.org.uk.
Who we have helped
As with a number of our beneficiaries Mrs A and Mrs B are both retired nurses following long service and, now both into their nineties, still living at home. For many years we have made payments in October and March each year to help with heating bills and also make a gift at Christmas to show that the nursing profession still remembers them.
Mrs C was seeking assistance for the installation of toilet facilities downstairs. Following a visit by a Trustee we agree to support the application and on a follow up visit Mrs C confirmed how pleased she was with the new downstairs facilities and the huge difference it made to her life.
Mrs D was referred by the local Care & Repair service and arranged to have work done to lower the pavement and bring her car nearer the door. This proved very beneficial to her as she is becoming increasingly less mobile due to her medical condition.
And for many others we have provided
- support for the infirm and ill
- welfare for the aged and retired
- assistance in times of financial hardship
- educational bursaries
