Donate in memory

Commemorate the life of someone special by making a donation, setting up a Tribute Fund or arranging a funeral collection.

We know that it is a very challenging time for many people, but particularly for those who have lost a loved one. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted funeral arrangements and knowing what to do at the moment can be difficult. You can find the latest guidance for arranging or attending a funeral by visiting the government website. If there is anything we can help you with, please get in touch by emailing or calling  01423 501 269. We’re here to help and we’d love to hear from you.

Set up a Tribute Fund

A tribute fund is a special online place where you, your family and friends can share memories and celebrate the life of a loved one. Tribute fund pages are easy to set up and are a great way to share happy memories, stories and photos. They can also be used to collect individual donations or even to set up your own fundraising event.
