Many people who have lost a loved one may wish to hold a collection at the memorial service and encourage friends and family to give to a charity rather than sending flowers.
For more information about how to do this please contact the Fundraising Team on 020 3447 9361 or email Uclh.firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you our In Memory pack.
A time to remember
By holding a collection for the UCH Cancer Fund, you are not only remembering a loved one but helping UCLH to support current cancer patients and their families. We have a personalised In memory collection pack available that you can request which include envelopes that you can hand out at the funeral. Your funeral director should be able to take care of this or you can send them back to us directly with our freepost envelopes.
If you prefer to set up an online memorial page instead of collecting money at the funeral, click on the link below:
To request a pack, please email the Fundraising Team at email@example.com with the subject title: In Memory pack and the name of your loved one.
A life to remember
After the memorial service, many people like to have an opportunity to celebrate the life of a loved one by raising funds for UCLH. This is often a touching and personal way to remember someone special. The UCH Cancer Fund is here to enable you to achieve this.
From climbing the heights of Kilimanjaro, trekking the sunny coat of the South Downs Way to organising a garden party, you can raise funds in honour of a loved one that will not only keep their memory and story alive but support those currently affected by cancer.
Our dedicated fundraising team are here to support you at every step of your fundraising – from providing you with useful online fundraising tips to giving you a UCH Cancer Fund merchandise, collection tins and sponsorship forms. We can arrange a bespoke fundraising programme that fits your needs and wishes.
If you would like more information or would like to discuss your options, please do get in touch on 020 3447 9361 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
“How would I describe Caroline? She was everything – a very loving daughter, sister, proud godmother, loyal friend to all her many friends, determined, extraordinary, inspirational, hopeless with money, temperamental, but most of all – brave. When she was diagnosed with cervical cancer at only 25, just as she was starting her dream career with British Airways (BA), she never gave up the fight. The only thing that really upset her was losing her hair, but after chemotherapy it grew back, thick, wavy and very blonde! There was only one career Caroline wanted, and that was to be cabin crew for BA. She worked for a few other airlines, but when BA advertised for staff, she went for it. Unfortunately, on the day of the interview, there was heavy overnight snow – she couldn’t drive there, so she walked from her hotel – about one mile and got there at 7am, needless to say she was accepted! Even though her career with BA was interrupted several times through her illness, she had a wonderful time flying all over the world, meeting some amazing people and seeing unforgettable places. She packed more into her 28 years than most people do in an ordinary life time. Throughout her illness Caroline received wonderful care and attention at UCH. All the staff are very special people. £2,800, to date has been collected in Caroline’s memory, which is truly spectacular, and a tribute to her from her family and many friends and colleagues.”
