Giving in tribute is a wonderful way to remember a friend or loved one. No matter what the value of your gift is, it will help us to carry on our important work.

We are especially grateful to be remembered at such a difficult time and personally acknowledge all gifts.

Funeral collections and donations instead of flowers

Many people choose to remember a deceased loved one by asking family and friends to make a donation to us instead of buying flowers.

Some people also hold a collection at the funeral and donate the proceeds to us. Funeral directors will often organise this for you. If you like, we will send you collection envelopes that you can put on seats, leave on a table or include in the order of service. Envelopes can either be collected on the day, or people can send them to us at a later date. If you would like more information about this, please contact the Supporter Care Team on 0808 800 1050 or email

Donation envelopes

If a collection is organised through the funeral director, please ensure they pass on the names and addresses of those who would like to receive an acknowledgment of their gift.

Alternatively, donations can be made on our website at  If you'd prefer to donate by post, simply download and print our donate in memory form here. If you are unable to print our donation form, just include a cover letter telling us your details and the name of the person you are remembering and send to:
