Other ways to support us
Give in celebration
A great way to support Dementia Support is by giving in celebration. Whatever the occasion, you can make a real difference. Instead of gifts for your next big celebration, why not ask your friends and family to donate to Dementia Support instead?
A gift in memory
A gift in memory allows you to remember someone special through a donation dedicated to them. Here are the ways you can give charitable donations in memory of a loved one:
Donations at a funeral or memorial
Charitable donations are increasingly commonplace at funerals now. You can choose Dementia Support as the recipient of donations at a loved one’s funeral by liaising with your funeral director or by contacting us directly.
Give in lieu of flowers
Families often ask for donations to Dementia Support instead of flowers at the funeral of a loved one. The phrase ‘in lieu of flowers’ doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no flowers at the funeral; often it means that the family may have decided to limit floral tributes to immediate family only and others are invited to donate to a named charity if they wish. Your funeral director will be able to advise you on the different options.
Holding an Event
Taking part in a sponsored event, such as a run, walk or parachute jump, is fun and challenging way to raise money for charity. You can sign up to an established event or do your own. It is also easy to set a sponsorship page online: mydonate.bt.com/charities/dementiasupport
Hold a Bake Sale, Coffee Morning, Dinner, Movie Night with friends, family, colleagues or a group you are a member of. This is not only a good social occasion, you can also raise money to support people living with dementia.
