Donate in memory

1 min read

We are very touched whenever people contact us asking how they can help support Brain Tumour Research after losing someone special.

During this difficult time, it may be comforting to remember and celebrate their life by donating to a charity that is close to their heart.

Donations made in someone’s memory are both a powerful tribute to that person and a tremendous help to Brain Tumour Research as we continue our fight to fund a cure for brain tumours. 

Whether your are collecting funeral donations or thinking of setting up a tribute fund in your loved one's memory, the options below will give you the information you need to make the process as simple as possible.

Set up a tribute fund to celebrate a loved one's memory

A particularly popular and comforting way for families to celebrate a loved one’s memory is to set up a Forever in our Hearts tribute fund.

These online funds give families and friends the opportunity to leave messages, share memories and add special photos, videos or music of their loved one. By setting up a fund, many of our supporters have been given the peace of mind that every pound donated is making a real difference to finding a cure for brain tumours.

Arranging a funeral collection

When we lose a loved one, whether it is a family member or close friend, we are overwhelmed with the many different emotions that their death brings us.  Along with this, there are many different decisions we have to make with one being how we should respect their wishes.  Many people have already decided to ask for donations at their funeral but sometimes this is also something decided by the family themselves.  

We can help you with some of these arrangements by setting up a Funeral Tribute page (which can also act as a funeral notice), which you can then share with family & friends.  This fund gives the opportunity to make a donation along with leaving a personal message of condolence or even lighting a virtual candle. 

Collection Envelopes

At Brain Tumour Research, we are able to offer family and friends their own opportunity to make their own individual and personal donation through one of our very own donation collection envelopes.  

Should you require any of these envelopes then please do get in touch with a member of our in-memory team on or 01908 867200 and we can arrange for these to be sent out to you as soon as possible.
