Gift in Memory

Many people choose to support our Bright charity by making a ‘gift in memory’ and by asking family and friends to remember their loved one in a lasting and meaningful way. You can choose to donate a ‘gift in memory’ to a particular service which helped care for your nearest and dearest and we greatly appreciate any donations, no matter how big or small. Every single penny we get makes a real difference to the 500,000 people we provide care for every year.

Making a ‘gift in memory’ is very simple and we are more than happy to lend a hand if you need some help.  You can either:

  • Donate online with a simple one off donation
  • Give us a call on 0191 203 1354 to discuss your ‘gift in memory’
  • Send us a cheque made payable to ‘Northumbria Healthcare NHS Trust Charity‘ to the address below and include contact details so we can send you a receipt:

Collection at a funeral or memorial service 

If you would like to support us through a collection at a funeral or memorial service, many funeral directors will be able to arrange this for you and forward the donations to Bright Northumbria. Alternatively, if you would like to arrange the collection yourself, please give us a call on 0191 203 1354 or email

However you choose to contribute, you can be assured that your kind donation will help us look after the thousands of patients and families in our care.  If you wish to donate to a particular service please don’t forget to let us know when making your donation.
