It might be that you're celebrating a special birthday, or an anniversary or you might be getting married. If so, you could choose to celebrate your big day by supporting the Children's Bereavement Centre by asking for donations in lieu of gifts.

You can even set up a birthday fundraiser via Facebook.

We can provide donation envelopes, thank you cards, promotional materials and collecting tins to make raising money as easy as possible.

You might make a donation as a way of remembering someone special, this is an opportunity to honour a loved one by helping children and families who are going through their own tough time.

There are different ways to do this:

Make a one off or regular donation to the Children's Bereavement Centre in their memory. Create a Tribute Fund where you can create a lasting way to remember a loved one by bringing people together to remember and celebrate the life of that special person.

Challenge yourself in their memory and raise vital funds for us by taking part in one of our challenge events or through organising your own.

 If you are a funeral director or family member making funeral arrangements and would like to support the Children's Bereavement Centre, we can provide you with donation forms that include Gift Aid forms that allow us to claim 5p for every £1 that people donate at no extra cost.

We can also provide free literature and advice if you need support in talking to a child about a funeral, burial or cremation. Click HERE fore more details. 

Sending in donations


If you have set up a Tribute Fund or fundraising page, you can easily transfer your raised amount to us online. If you do not have a page, please write a cheque payable to the "Children's Bereavement Centre" and post it to us. 

Once we have received all of the money raised, we will send you a thank you letter which will also let you know how much has been raised in memory of your loved one.
