Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way of celebrating their life, whilst helping us give magical memories to seriously ill children and their families. We know these gifts have extra meaning and we are always grateful to receive them.
If you'd like to speak to someone about donating in memory of a loved one, please call Jamie Cotton on 01276 40 50 53 or [email protected].
Funeral collections and donations in lieu of flowers
Asking friends and family to make donations at a funeral, or to donate instead of sending flowers, is a meaningful way to honour the memory of a loved one. You can arrange a funeral collection yourself or your funeral director may be able to help you. Either way, we can give you donation envelopes which help you keep track of what has been donated and let us claim Gift Aid on the donations.
Please ask guests to make cheques payable to Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. Please send donations along with details of whose memory they have been collected in to: Make-A-Wish Foundation UK, 329-331 London Road, Camberley, GU15 3HQ.
Other ways to fundraise in memory
Some people choose to donate each year on a special birthday or anniversary with a single donation or even by setting up a Direct Debit in your loved one’s name. Or, you could join together with friends and family to raise money.
Others like to run marathons or organise community events like cakes sales. Whatever you choose we will be her to support you.
Setting up an online giving page
You can set up an online page on JustGiving and keep track of donations made in memory of your loved one. Friends and families who have raised money in this way tell us that it has helped them do something positive at a time of sadness.
