Gifts in lieu of flowers
Gifts that live on in your community.
When it comes to saying goodbye, friends and family frequently want to show their support and respect by leaving a parting gift. While it’s commonplace to buy flowers, they can be expensive and not a lasting memorial. We find that more of our clients stipulate they would prefer a donation to Silver Chain Group in lieu of flowers. This ensures the gifts received live on in the valuable services we provide and have a lasting impact in your community.
Making it easy for family and friends to honour your last wishes.
Donation envelopes can be arranged for any event, and we work closely with funeral home operators to ensure that any contributions made are forwarded directly to us. We liaise with your next of kin post ceremony to advise of any memorial contributions made.
Your supporters can also donate to a specific service line of interest, should you wish to be specific about the use of funds provided.
How to arrange gifts in lieu of flowers:
Let your Funeral Director know that you would prefer your friends and family to make donations in lieu of flowers. Many funeral home providers have our donation envelopes on hand and will be able to provide these to you on the day. If they do not, please call our fundraising team who will liaise directly with your funeral director to arrange the details.
