Making a donation or fundraising in memory of someone special is a lovely way to remember and honour their life.

In doing so, you can continue to celebrate their life. And your kind gift in their memory will make a real difference to the lives of local patients, their loved ones, and the superstar staff who care for them.

There are many ways you can donate or fundraise in memory of your someone special. You can give or fundraise at any time, there’s no time limit.

Funeral collection

Many people invite friends and family to make a donation to charity instead of sending flowers. It’s a lovely way to remember your loved one and thank the staff at Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust who looked after them.

Collecting donations at the funeral

We know that planning a funeral can be a difficult time. Your funeral director can often arrange collections without you needing to do anything.

If you’d like to organise the collection yourself, we can give you everything you need, including a secure collection box. We can personalise this and include special donation envelopes with a Gift Aid declaration. This allows us to claim and extra 25p for every £1 that people donate at no extra cost.

Donating online

Your funeral director may have a specific online fundraising website they like people to use, but you can also use Much Loved to set up a tribute page in your loved one’s memory.

Fundraise in memory

Some supporters sign up to a challenge such as a walk or run, or create their own challenge to raise funds in memory of their loved one. Visit our challenge page for upcoming events or see our fundraising toolkit for advice on how to organise your own event.

Setting up a memorial fundraising page with MuchLoved is simple, and once it’s done, you can share it with your family and friends.

If you’d like to talk through your ideas or get help, you’re welcome to contact us.

Set up a tribute fund

A tribute fund is a lasting online memorial. A single place where people can come together to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one by sharing stories and photos, and raising funds in their memory.

You can add to a tribute fund at any time. Some supporters choose to remember their loved one year after year on special dates like birthdays and anniversaries.

It’s a wonderful way to ensure your loved one’s legacy continues to live on while also helping to bring moments of comfort and hope to other patients and their families for many years to come.

Set up a tribute fund for your loved one on Much Loved.
