A special way of remembering a loved one can be to raise money in memory of their life, however short. Giving in memory can also provide a comfort to those who know that their donations are going to help others going through difficult times.

Donations in lieu of flowers

You may wish to ask people attending the funeral or remembrance event for your baby or loved one to make donations to Sands instead of bringing flowers. Asking friends and family to make a donation in lieu of flowers at a funeral event is a lovely way to celebrate and acknowledge the life of a loved one.

Donations we receive in memory are very special to us. Supporting Sands in memory of a loved one is an incredible way to remember them and to help to try to reduce the number of precious babies dying every day in the UK.

How do I organise a funeral collection?

We have collection envelopes and other materials which are able to be used at funeral services. You can order collection envelopes using our online form. If you would like to talk to someone further about a funeral collection please contact us at supportercare@sands.org.uk.

Thank you

On behalf of Sands, we would like to say a heartfelt thank you to you and your friends and family, for choosing to support us during this incredibly difficult time.
