Gift in Memory

When we lose a loved one, doing something meaningful in their name can help us to cope.


"My family and I wanted to do something to say thank you for the kind, loving and exceptional care they gave."

Donate in memory

Many people choose to honour a loved one’s memory by raising money for a charity that was close to their heart, or by donating to a cause they believed in.

If you decide to make an online donation or do a funeral collection in their memory, your gift to Friends of the Elderly will bring much joy and happiness to the older people we support.

One-off In Memory Donation

You could make a lasting difference in their name by making a donation once a year, perhaps during the month of a birthday or anniversary

Make a dedicated tribute page for your loved one

Creating a unique tribute page is a wonderful way to celebrate the life of someone dear to you.

It is a dedicated space for friends and family to share special stories or memories. You can also select and donate to a charity, so if you wish to make a gift to Friends of the Elderly in your loved one’s name you can do this easily.

Your personalised page can offer comfort at a difficult time and be a meaningful way for those who are unable to attend the funeral to reminisce.

Rainbow Table

The difference in memory giving can make

At our Bernard Sunley care home in Woking residents have been enjoying a new interactive activity thanks to the generous donations and fundraising efforts of family members of former residents.

For people who are living with dementia, using and engaging with the Activity Table can increase mental stimulation. They can experience and enjoy reminiscing, playing games, sensory, learning and relaxation activities.

“Thanks to Tony, Norman and James’ kind donations and fundraising triumph, I was able to purchase the Table. All the team have seen how it has become a firm favourite and an added incentive for our residents to socialise and interact with one another” Andy, Care Home Manager
