Losing someone close to you will always be hard. Nowadays, it's becoming more common for those left behind to want to celebrate the life of their loved one, as well as grieving for their loss. Often, they choose to make a donation to a favourite charity, as a meaningful way to honour the life of someone close to them.
By giving to a cause your loved one supported, you can ensure that they continue to make a difference even after they have passed on, which can be a wonderfully positive way to commemorate their life.
Another increasingly popular idea is to and ask friends and family to give a donation rather than flowers at the funeral in order to make even more of a difference. Many people find that it brings some small consolation in a time of grief, to know that they are continuing the good work which a loved one began in his or her lifetime. If you want to do this, the funeral directors should help you with the organisation and send the money on to us.
We are always extremely grateful when someone chooses to remember a loved one in this way, as we are aware of how difficult this time is for those left behind. All donations, no matter how small, make a difference to the lives of people with cerebral palsy and their families.
If you would prefer donations in your memory rather than flowers at your own funeral, please let your executors or next of kin know so that this can be arranged by them.
