Fundraise in Memory
Taking part in a fundraising event, or organising your own fundraiser, is a fun and fulfilling way to raise money in memory of your loved one.
Whether you run a cake sale or a marathon, hold a quiz night or a bike ride, why not challenge yourself to fundraise in memory of your loved one and make new and happy memories along the way?
How Can I Fundraise In Memory?
Whether you’d like to place a collection tin in a local shop, cook up a curry night, organise a football match, hold a virtual karaoke party or be sponsored to give up chocolate for a month – we can help.
How Do I Register My Fundraising Event?
Once you’ve decided how you’d like to fundraise, please contact Hayley on 07436817589 or email.
We can help you register your collection or event and advise you on your next steps and what permissions you may need to seek from local authorities.
How Can I Collect Money Or Be Sponsored In Memory?
Creating an online fundraising page is a safe and effective way to join with others and raise money in memory of a loved one. There are many platforms that offer the option to donate or fundraise online, here are a few:
A Memory Fund remembrance page is the easiest way to collect sponsorship or donations online, confident in the knowledge they’re being recorded as in memory of your loved one.
You can create multiple fundraising events within your main fund and share them via social media.
It’s simple to keep track of how much money your event has raised through online and offline donations, and you’ll be able to see these contributions added to the overall total too.
If you use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and family, creating a Facebook Fundraiser is an easy way to organise a collection.
If you choose to support us, please remember to select ‘St Vincent’s Hospice’ as your chosen charity and let others know who your collection is commemorating.
You can do this either in the title of your fundraiser, for example “Jack’s sponsored bungee jump in memory of Gran” or by using the “Why are you raising money?” area when you create your collection.
Once you’ve started your Facebook fundraiser, please contact Hayley on 07436 817589 or email so we can acknowledge your donations in memory of your loved one.
If you already have a Just Giving account, creating a memorial page could be another option for you.
You can mark your collection as being in memory and name the page after your loved one.
If you’re seeking sponsorship for an event you’re organising or taking part in, you can also mark your collection as being in memory.
Again, once you’ve started your Justgiving page, please contact Hayley on 07436 817589 or email so we can acknowledge your donations in memory of your loved one.
