Information for funeral directors
Following the loss of a loved one many families choose to support us with funeral collections, taking comfort in the thought of being able to help others.
We have some free services that may help to make this process as simple and efficient as possible for funeral directors:
Did you know that you can set up an online Tribute page on behalf of your client to include a funeral notice and collect donations which come directly to the charity? It’s quick and easy to set up and saves you the additional task of forwarding donation on to us.
Family and friends of the deceased can also share fond memories, thoughts, light candles and upload photographs offering comfort to the family while such strict restrictions on funerals are in place.
You can also set up a memory giving page https://www.memorygiving.com/
We also offer free personalised funeral envelopes which contain Gift Aid information to save you from having to print off Gift Aid forms.
Donations received in memory help to continue our work to support all those affected by lung cancer, people like Vicky.
Vicky, along with her husband, is living with incurable cancer. She has been receiving treatment for the last three years, but her disease has spread, and she couldn’t access the only other treatment that might help.
Her sister, Alison, called our nurse-led helpline for advice. Armed with the necessary information, Vicky has now been given access to a new treatment, which could give her more time with her three children.
With so much anxiety and uncertainty, calls to our helpline have increased by 56% during the coronavirus pandemic. Your support means we can continue to support those who need us, just like Vicky did.
