Thank you for thinking of collecting donations at the funeral of your loved one, perhaps in lieu of flowers. Each and every donation made in their name will help us to continue our lifesaving work and fund vital research. We hope that knowing this can be some comfort to you during this difficult time.
Please scroll down to find out the different ways you can organise a funeral collection with us:
Create an online funeral collection page
An online funeral collection page is a special place for family and friends to come together to remember your loved one by donating, sharing memories, photographs, videos and much more. You can add details about the funeral here and post a live stream link for those unable to attend due to current government restrictions.
During a time where physically coming together is very challenging, an online page allows you to still celebrate their life with everyone who misses them, in one place.
To set one up is simple, just fill in the box below:
If you're having any problems setting up a page or would rather have us set one up for you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7940 1769.
Request collection envelopes
Our envelopes allow you to easily collect donations in memory, they’re free of charge and you can order as many as you need for the service. They include a Gift Aid declaration to boost any donations by 25% and a freepost envelope so you can easily return them.
Collections via your Funeral Director
If your funeral director has offered to collect donations on our behalf, please get in touch with us to let us know. By doing this, we're able to thank you for remembering your loved one with us and for the total amount given in their name.
Contact us via email at email@example.com or call us on 020 7940 1769.
Sending in Cheques
If you've received cheque donations in memory of your loved one, then please post them to us when you find a moment. Make sure to include a note to say how many cheques there are, the total, the name of the person you're remembering along with the details of anybody you would like us to thank for their contribution (email or postal address).
Please make cheques payable to Bowel Cancer UK and send to:
Bowel Cancer UK
Unit 202, Edinburgh House
170 Kennington Lane
