This year, why not enjoy a day out at a National Gardens Scheme garden - you'll be helping fund the QNI too!
Providing vital funding for projects that help improve patient care.
Visit our nursing heritage website, a celebration of District Nursing around the world since 1859.
Donating in memory of a loved one is a valuable and positive way to celebrate their life, whilst helping the QNI improving the nursing care of people in their own homes.
This meaningful gift allows us to make a real difference supporting community nurses whose help, compassion, and care we will all be grateful for at some point in our lives.
If you would like to remember a loved one in this way, you can make the arrangements through a funeral director. Alternatively, you can complete the Donate in Memory form and return to The Queen’s Nursing Institute, 3 Albemarle Way, London EC1V 4RQ.
Alternatively, you can make a donation in memory, or create a fundraise in memory page on Justgiving.

If you would prefer donations to be made to the QNI in your memory, rather than receiving floral tributes, it is a good idea to let your executors know of your wishes or to include it in the details about your funeral.
'Thank you, especially for all you did for Carol and myself, and our family over the last few months. You got so many difficult balances just right. Efficient without being officious, cheerful and cheering without being brisk or matter of fact or ever hitting a false note, knowing when we needed help and when you could boost our morale by showing us how to help ourselves. Every time we had a problem you provided us with a means of coping with it. Always having time for an extra word with me or Carol's mother or other members of the family.. We could not have wished for a better nurse or a better friend. Thank you a thousand times.'
