In Lieu of Flowers
Some people choose to limit floral tributes at a funeral and ask family and friends to make a charitable donation instead. If this is something you would like to do for the Hospice, we can help by providing donation envelopes, which can be given to those attending the service.
Our donation envelopes are a very simple and convenient way to collect donations. There is space on the envelope for the name and address of each donor meaning we can thank them afterwards. It also gives us an opportunity to ask donors if they would like to Gift Aid their personal donation, which means we can claim an extra 25p from the Government for every £1 donated at no cost to the donor.
Unfortunately, we are unable to claim Gift Aid on the vast majority of donations collected without using an envelope. Please call on: 01484 557911 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to order your envelopes.
We will send everyone who makes a donation a special thank you card containing wildflower seeds, for them to plant in their garden. Once grown, these beautiful flowers will be a lasting memory of your loved one, helping people to remember the times they shared with your special person. As the next of kin, your thank you card will show you the total amount received from your loved one’s funeral.
Once you have collected all donations in lieu of flowers, you can bring them directly in to the Hospice or give them to your Funeral Director to forward on to us. They will be happy to do this.
Some people choose to set up an online memorial page to collect donations in lieu of flowers. This is really is easy to do and only takes 5 minutes. You can personalise your page by adding photographs and stories of your loved one. Once your page has been created, you can forward the link to all your contacts who can make a donation in their own time. The money comes directly through to us and includes Gift Aid for those donors who are UK tax payers.
