Donations in Memory

One way that many people choose to remember a loved one is by donating in their memory to a charity close to their heart or one that resonated with the person lost. There are many ways to make a tribute to a loved one in this way.

Personal Donations

Making a personal donation in tribute of a loved one is a special way to remember them and celebrate their life while helping another in need. Although many people wish to make a donation soon after a bereavement many people find comfort in making a donation to mark a special anniversary such as a birthday.

Funeral Collections

If you decide to collect donations in lieu of flowers at the funeral the best thing to do first is speak to the funeral director. Most funeral directors will assist by collecting donations and forwarding to us on your behalf. We can provide a donations box, should you need it, and envelopes.

Online Tributes

At a time where there is so much to do and things often feel like more of a challenge than usual, setting up an online tribute page is a simple and quick way of collecting donations. Tribute pages enable you to create a personalised fundraising platform in a few easy steps that people from all over the world can remember your loved one by. We recommend using Just Giving for this; to download instructions of how to set up an online page please CLICK HERE
