Making a donation or fundraising in memory of a loved one is a very special way of paying tribute and helping to make a real difference to our appeal.
We are extremely grateful for these donations, and to all the families and friends who fundraise in memoriam, choosing to celebrate the life of their loved one in such a positive way.
There are several ways you can choose to honour a loved one:
- Make a one-off donation
- Give a regular gift
- Request donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral
- Do a sponsored activity or hold a tribute event in memory of your loved one
- In memory fundraising – online
- Make a gift to the charity on special days (birthdays, Christmas)
Request donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral
Many families like to ask for donations instead of flowers at a funeral or memorial service. Your funeral director will be able to collect the donations and we can provide collection envelopes if you wish. Otherwise, donations can be made directly to us (enquiry form or contact us page). Please just remember to let us know the name of the person you are remembering on any correspondence.
Do a sponsored activity or hold a tribute event in memory of your loved one
You might like to organise a fundraising or sponsored event to commemorate someone special. Please let us know if you would like a copy of our fundraising pack, which we hope will provide you with lots of information about setting up a sponsored event.
In memory fundraising – online
The easiest way to collect sponsorship money is usually online using a site such as Virgin Money Giving or Just Giving.
Once you have created your Friarage MRI Scanner Appeal Charity page you can use the space provided to write about the person you’re remembering.
Your friends and family can give to your page easily, safely and securely, wherever they are and whenever they would like to. Together you can create a lasting tribute in memory of your loved one.
Make a gift to the charity on special days (birthdays, Christmas)
You may wish to remember special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries or other personal dates by making an in memory donation to support the MRI Friarage Appeal.
