Remember a Loved One Remembering your loved one Many friends and families of those who have received our care feel moved to give something back to the community, so that we may support others at such a difficult time in their lives. You can make a real difference to someone living with a life-limiting illness now and in the future. Donating at a funeral or memorial service One way to celebrate the life of a loved one is to ask family and friends to donate at their funeral service. For example, people often choose to donate in lieu of flowers. To make collecting money at funerals and memorial services as easy as possible, we can provide your funeral director with our in-memoriam envelopes. Please call the fundraising team on 01453 886868 for further details. Your funeral director can then collect the donations for you and send them directly to the hospice. Please remember that any cheques should be made payable to ‘Longfield.’ Take part in one of our events Getting a group of people together and taking part in one of our events is a great way to spend time with those who cared about your loved one whilst raising money in their memory. Organise your own event You might like to celebrate the life of a loved one by organising your own community event. From inviting your friends and family for an afternoon tea, to arranging a fancy-dress day with your colleagues at work; the possibilities are endless. Why not organise something your loved one really enjoyed doing? You might choose to hold the event annually on a special day or it might be a one-off event. For ideas on events, please call the fundraising team on 01453 886868 or email [email protected]. We’ll be happy to help Challenge yourself Choose a challenge personal to you and dedicate the funds you raise in memory of your loved one. You can do this on your own or get a group of friends together. See our Challenge pages for more information. Light up a Life Christmas is a time for family and friends.
