Giving in memory

Support the Centre in memory of a loved one

When someone you love passes away, donating or fundraising to a cause they care about is a meaningful way to honour their memory and bring comfort knowing that you’re changing people’s lives.

You can commemorate someone special by inviting friends, family, communities and colleagues to make a donation to a collection online or at a funeral. You might choose to do this by asking for donations instead of flowers.

Thank you for considering people facing homelessness at this time.

There are many ways that you can support the Centre in memory of your loved one:

  • Create an online memorial collection
  • Collect at the funeral or memorial service
  • Donate on an important anniversary

Create an online collection

An online page gives you a place where family, friends, communities and colleagues can share their memories in one place, it’s simple to share and makes collecting donations even more secure.

It’s really easy to set up an online collection in memory of a loved one with Memorygiving.com or JustGiving.com.

Collect at a funeral or memorial service

Choosing a funeral collection in memory of a loved one are a personal way of remembering someone whilst making a last difference to people facing homelessness.

Ask your funeral director to help you arrange a collection, or order special collection forms and freepost envelopes for a funeral collection, please contact Emily and Cerian on 020 7227 1650 or email supporters@cardinalhumecentre.org.uk

Please be aware of the coronavirus restrictions on attendance at funerals in this time. To help friends and family who cannot attend, you may want to invite them to make a donation by creating an online memorial place.

Donate on an important anniversary

Birthdays, anniversaries and special days can be the most important time to celebrate the memory of a loved one. Making an annual donation to a cause you care about in their memory can bring great comfort.

If you would like to create a special, annual direct debit in memory of your loved one, get in touch with Emily and Cerian on 020 7227 1650 or email supporters@cardinalhumecentre.org.uk, and we will arrange the special form and freepost return envelopes.

If you’re going through a difficult time after losing a loved one you may find the NHS guidance on bereavement or advice on coping with bereavement and grief during the coronavirus outbreak useful.
