Give in memory

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. We know these gifts have extra meaning and we’re always grateful to receive them.

Thanks to kind people like you, we can continue granting life-changing wishes to children and young people with critical illnesses.

By asking family and friends to make a donation in memory at the funeral of a loved one, or instead of sending flowers, they’ll be honouring the memory of their loved one in a meaningful way. You can arrange a funeral collection yourself, or your funeral director may be able to help you.

How donations in memory can help more children

You can help donations go further by requesting donation envelopes for your family and friends to complete alongside giving a cash or cheque donation. Not only will this help you keep track of what has been donated, it’ll also allow us claim Gift-Aid on the donations made, meaning that we can more life-changing wishes to more seriously ill children.
