Take on a challenge in a loved one’s name

Each year, we host our popular memory walk, Night to Remember, which begins and finishes in Kingston town centre.  This is an opportunity for friends, family and colleagues to come together and complete a five or 13 mile walk in the name of a loved one.

We also offer a large range of challenge events from bungee jumping, sky diving to cycling and running. If you can’t see anything you like, please let us know and we can help you find the event that’s right for you. For more information, please click here

For more information or a chat about what you would like to do, please contact Tracey on 07867 189142 or by email at tracey.shaw17@nhs.net

Treasure your memories

Losing someone special is incredibly difficult for everyone but setting up a Tribute page is a unique way to remember a loved one. Friends and family, near or far, can come together, share special memories to support each other and celebrate a loved one’s life in a very personal way. They can also make donations if they wish, leaving a lasting legacy in a loved one’s name.  You can choose a special ward, service or area of work that you would like the funds to benefit. Free to create, it’s your space to put photos, stories, videos and favourite songs and even light a virtual candle – like an online memory box.

Make a donation

You can make a one-off or more regular donation today. If you donate online, there is space in the message box to tell us the name of your loved one, so we can link your gift with any others made in their honour and share the total donated with the next of kin. There is also space to tell us if you would like your donation to go to a specific ward, department or service. If you would prefer to send a cheque, please make it payable to Kingston Hospital Charity and post it to Freepost KHCHARITY, while remembering to tell us the name of your loved one and whether you wish your gift to benefit a particular area of the hospital.

In memory of Rahila Shah

Our sincere thanks to Nadia Shah and her family who together generously donated £3,500 in memory of her mother, Rahila Shah, for the purchase of a vein finder for use on the care of the elderly wards. Vein finders allow clinicians to visualise veins beneath the skin’s surface, reducing the need for multiple attempts to locate a suitable vein and is particularly useful for patients with difficult-to-locate veins, such as those who are elderly. Nadia noticed that staff on the care of the elderly wards were constantly having to borrow the vein finder used by the phlebotomy department.

Nadia said:
Guided by her generous spirit and desire to alleviate unnecessary suffering, we’ve contributed a vein finder, a tool that can simplify the sometime arduous and painful process of drawing blood for patients. Rahila was more than just a devoted wife and mother; she was an active grandmother of nine, whose vibrancy of life was diagnosed with endometrial cancer last summer. After a swift battle, she passed away at the Royal Marsden, Chelsea, following a transfer from Kingston Hospital. Her memory lives on, not only in the hearts of those who loved her, but also in this gift that we hope will help many patients.”
