Collecting donations at a funeral is a powerful way to remember a loved one.
If you have recently lost a loved one, please accept our sincere condolences on your bereavement. It is very kind of you to be thinking of us at this time – thank you.
You may wish to ask your family and friends to donate to Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity in memory of your loved one instead of flowers at a funeral or memorial service.
Please read on for more information on holding a funeral collection, requesting materials or setting up a collection online, or if you would prefer to talk to someone about this, please contact our In Memory Giving Manager, Michelle Merrison.
Holding a Funeral Collection
There are two ways to hold a funeral collection.
- For online donations, you can set up a tribute page online. This will make it quick and simple for friends and family, wherever they are, to give in memory of your loved one.
- We can provide you with donation envelopes which can be given to people as they enter or leave the service or placed on the seats at the venue. Our donation envelopes make it easy for friends and family to let us know if their donation is eligible for Gift Aid increasing the value of each donation. You might also like to request collection pots so that family and friends can make cash donations.
When all donations have been received, we will inform you of the total amount raised in memory of your loved one.
Alternatively, you may wish to speak with your Funeral Director who will be able to accept cheques and cash donations on our behalf. You can provide them with our contact details and we’ll be happy to assist them if they need any help from us.
Please complete your details in the form below to request donation envelopes or collection tubs, or if you would like to talk to someone about holding a funeral collection, requesting materials or setting up a collection online, please contact Michelle at email@example.com or call 01296 429975.

Unit 2, Walton Lodge, Walton Street, Aylesbury, HP21 7QY
You can make a difference
Our vision is for local patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, to be able to access the best possible care and support, whenever and wherever they need it.
This will only be possible with the generosity and commitment of our supporters. Every day your donations help us to develop and deliver the services which make such a difference in our patients’ lives.
Please support us in whatever way you can to help keep our dedicated and specialist care available for those who need it.
