Organising a collection
We know that organising a funeral can be a difficult time. It’s our hope that we can help to make the funeral collection process as straightforward as possible.
If you are organising a collection in memory, we can provide collection envelopes to give to family and friends at the memorial service. These envelopes enable Gift Aid and enable us to receive an extra 25p for every pound donated. To request our envelopes, please call our Supporter Care Team on 0300 3300 740 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, you can organise an online collection by setting up a Remembrance Fund and sharing your fund with friends and family.
Our Supporter Care Team are on hand to answer any questions you may have about organising a collection. You can contact them on 0300 3300 740 or by emailing email@example.com. Alternatively, you can contact your local fundraising team.
Sending in donations
When paying in donations, we’d like to make sure that we process and acknowledge the donation correctly. When paying in your donations, it would be very helpful if you let us know:
- The name of the person the donation is being made in memory of.
- Your name, address and relationship to the person the donation is being made in memory of.
Please send all cheques and collection envelopes to:
Supporter Care Team
1 Sterling Business Park
When returning collection envelopes, please ensure they are sealed safely within another envelope before sending to the above address. If you have collected cash, please do not send this to us through the post. Please bank the cash and send us a cheque for the equivalent amount or alternatively you can call our Supporter Care Team on 0300 3300 740 and make a donation over the phone.
Funeral and memorial information

- What to do when someone has died.
- Advice on arranging a funeral or memorial service (from Citizens Advice or Funeralzone).
- How to access help with funeral costs.

Information for funeral professionals
We’re very grateful for the support that funeral professionals show us – both independently and on behalf of their clients. We aim to make donation collection as simple as possible.
By encouraging Gift Aid envelopes to be used at memorial services, funeral professionals help us to receive an additional 25p for every pound donated. The simplest way to enable this is by informing families of our collection envelopes.
You can also make a payment over the phone by calling us on 0300 3300 740 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm). When you do pay in donations, please let us know the contact details for the next of kin so that we can acknowledge their generous support.
