Family and friends often give donations, rather than flowers, in memory of their loved ones who have died. These gifts not only honour the life of the person who has died, but offer practical support to Wellington Hospitals. Memorial gifts can be allocated to specific hospital departments at the request of family and friends (for example: cancer or cardiac patient care or research). A special envelope can be supplied to the funeral home to be available at the time of the funeral by contacting the Wellington Hospital Foundation office on 04 806 2332 or email
