Thank you for choosing to donate in memory of someone you love and miss. Giving in memory is a way of honouring the life of someone special while making a life changing difference to local families.
95% of our total income comes from public donations and fundraising, including donations in memory of loved ones and legacies. Your gift will help us to continue providing vital care and support to local children with life shortening conditions across Dorset and Wiltshire now and in the future.
Remembering someone who has died is a very personal thing so we offer a couple of different ways to give a gift in memory. We’re here to help you make a lasting and fitting tribute - to help you remember them in the most meaningful way.
Making a donation in memory of your loved one is a special way of remembering them. Our vital care service relies on the kindness of supporters like you and your friends and family.
Please let us know on the donation form where it says ‘Reason for your donation’ that your donation is being made in memory of your loved one and include their name/relationship to you. We’d like the opportunity to express our gratitude to you – and your family and friends – for thinking of us at this difficult time.
Families often ask for donations to Julia’s House instead of flowers at the funeral of a loved one or organise a funeral collection in honour of someone special. If you would like some special envelopes for the funeral, please contact us on 01202 644220 or email email@example.com and we will more than happy to help.
By using the envelopes, you could also raise up to 25% more as we can claim Gift Aid.
Funeral directors are usually happy to collect the envelopes on your behalf and send back to Julia’s House. Please note, there is often a delay with this money coming through to us.
