In memory giving
Making a donation in memory - remember a loved one
Many donations that come to Acorns Children’s Hospice are made in memory of a loved one. They are a very poignant way to remember someone special while also helping to raise money for local children and young people with life limiting and life threatening conditions and their families.
There are several ways you can choose to make a donation in memory of your loved one:
- You could collect donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral or memorial service. We can help by providing collection envelopes. These make it easy for friends and family to make a donation and include the option to gift aid and help raise more for Acorns. Once we have received the money raised at the collection we will send a thank you letter and let you know how much has been raised in memory of your loved one.
You or your funeral director can order the envelopes by calling our In Memoriam Officer, Janine Miller on 01564 825017 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . To ensure your envelopes arrive before the service please give us as much notice as possible.
- You could also collect donations online through an Acorns Tribute Fund which allows you to create a funeral notice and share the link to the Fund with friends and relatives. They will be able to make online donations and leave special messages in memory. You can also add in any money collected on the day or in the run up to the funeral as an "off-line" donation so that the amount is counted in the total raised by the Fund.
"Our mother helped to care for children all her life. We asked for donations to be made to Acorns in lieu of flowers at her funeral so that her good work will continue.”
