Remembering a loved one with a donation in their memory is a wonderful way to honour someone special at a difficult time.
In Memory & Legacy Giving
A gift in memory
Celebrate the life of a loved one by asking friends and family to donate in their memory. There are lots of ways you can create a meaningful and lasting tribute:
- Talk to your funeral director about collecting gifts at the funeral.
- You can set up an online tribute page using JustGiving. Friends and family can share treasured memories alongside making a donation.
- To make a one-off donation, send a cheque made payable to 'Carers in Bedfordshire' to: Emerald Court, Pilgrim Centre, Brickhill Drive, Bedford, MK41 7PZ or contact us for other options.
- Host an event or take on a challenge inspired by someone special.
If you need any guidance, please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
By helping carers to find a listening ear, helpful advice and the support of other carers, donating in memory provides a fitting legacy that will last for years to come. Thank you.
Leaving a legacy
A donation left in your will is a long-lasting gift; it is a gift that will stand by the carers of the future. In years to come, your legacy could be a Support Worker on the phone to a parent struggling to cope, an event that brings carers together for sympathy, understanding and laughter, or a brand new project that makes life just that little bit easier.
A legacy shouldn’t be a choice between your loved ones and your favourite charity. Once you have looked after your family, a gift to Carers in Bedfordshire, of any size, will be gratefully received and will help carers for years to come.
It is simple to include a donation in your will but it is always best to consult your solicitor to make sure that it represents your wishes accurately and that you understand the tax implications.
Your solicitor should ask you for the charity’s details:
Carers in Bedfordshire, Suite D1, Emerald Court, Pilgrim Centre, Brickhill Drive, Bedford, MK41 7PZ
Registered Charity Number: 1135507
