IN THE PASSING OF TIME THEIR MEMORY LIVES ON, NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN...
Donations at a funeral, usually in lieu of flowers, have become a tradition in recent times and provide an opportunity to raise money for a chosen charity in memoriam. We can now make this process even easier and more accessible to friends and family especially for those who might be unable to attend the funeral service. With this is mind we have setup an association with ‘Love2Donate’ to enable anyone to make a donation online to the family’s chosen charity (or several charities).
It is very simple to use and can be accessed via mobile phone, computer or tablet. The family can see all of the donations to the charity along with any messages people would like to leave. The fund page stays open for six weeks.
Setting up your fund page
During your appointment to discuss the funeral arrangements the funeral director will ask for some additional information including which charity or charities you are collecting for. We will then set up the fund page with ‘Love2Donate’ which will be immediately accessible from our website via the link opposite. Family and friends will then be able to access the fund page (which will open in a separate window) through our website and make safe secure donations to the chosen charity and leave a message for the family. In this way friends and family can raise money in memoriam and gift aid the donations, greatly increasing the value of the donation to the chosen charity.
Love 2 Donate adds Gift Aid to your donation and charges an administration fee of 5%. The net effect increases the donation to the chosen charity. A L & G Abbott do not charge for this service.
We also offer advice and guidance on floral tributes and handcrafted memorials. For further details, please click and view ourFlowers and Memorialspage.
