Arranging a funeral collection is a special way for family and friends to support the Royal United hospitals in memory of a loved one and is very easy to do. The Funeral Director will usually arrange the collection on your behalf and will make sure any donations collected are forwarded to us at The Forever Friends Appeal, Royal United Hospital, Combe Park, Bath BA1 3NG.

Donations that can be used across our hospitals where the need is greatest are very useful. Alternatively, if you would like your collection to benefit a particular hospital, ward or department, please let us or the Funeral Director know so we can make sure your donations are allocated accordingly.

Cheques can be made payable to The Forever Friends Appeal. However, if family and friends would prefer to make their donation online, they can do so here.

When all donations have been received, we will inform you of the total amount raised in memory of your loved one.

Please remember that we’re here to support you every step of the way, so if you have any questions or need any help then please contact Poppy on 01225 825931 or email
