Donate in memory

Donating or arranging a collection in memory of someone special is a positive way to remember them and celebrate their life.

And by helping us to make life better for carers, this lasting gift will be remembered long after the flowers and cards have faded.

You can donate online or ask people to donate for a funeral or remembrance service. Cheques made out to Carers UK can be sent to: Carers UK, 20 Great Dover Street, London SE1 4LX.
Please include a note that your donation is in memory of a loved one.

You may also like to create a tribute fund. It's a place for family and friends to make donations to Carers UK in memory of their loved one whilst sharing photographs, stories and memories. And Tribute Funds are ongoing, so occasions like birthdays and anniversaries can be celebrated year after year.

Fundraise in memory

Many people also choose to fundraise in memory of a loved one. Anything from having a cake sale, running a marathon or organising a black tie dinner. You can browse our website or get in touch for inspiration - but only your imagination is the limit.

A special gift

When Brigid Simpson died from cancer, her family made the very special decision to ask for donations to be made to Carers UK in lieu of flowers at the funeral.

We chose to support Carers UK because, even though we have had a tough six months throughout Brigid’s illness, we recognise that many others will not be as fortunate as we have been. Many people devote their lives to caring for others and do not have the extensive resources, love and support from friends and family that we’ve enjoyed. We chose to support Carers UK because they provide support where it is most needed.
– Paul Simpson, Brigid’s husband

Donations in memory of Brigid didn’t stop there. Family and friends rallied round to organise a quiz supper evening, Pilgrim Challenge and Ultramarathon. And four very brave people took on the infamous Tough Mudder in Brigid’s memory.

So far, more than £10,000 has been raised in celebration of Brigid’s life – a wonderful tribute to a special person.
