Wording for funeral notices

When writing a notice for the newspapers or an order of service many people want donations in memory of their loved one to go to a specific ward or charitable fund. To make sure that cheques are correctly written correctly please use the form of words below to indicate which hospital fund you would like donations in memory to go to.

All cheques should be made payable to the Colchester Hospitals Charity followed by the name of the ward of unit that donations are for. E.g.

‘Colchester Hospitals Charity Aldham Ward


If the name of the fund is long you can use a shorter version of the charity name e.g.

‘CoHoC Mary Barron Suite’
