We understand that planning a funeral is a difficult time, so if you'd like to speak to someone about organising the collection please call our fundraising team on 01924 331401.
If you’d like friends and relatives to make donations to Wakefield Hospice in lieu of flowers, your funeral director can advise you on the most suitable wording. It’s usually similar to the following: Donations can be made to Wakefield Hospice, Aberford Road, Wakefield WF1 4TS. Registered charity 518392. www.wakefieldhospice.org
Envelopes designed especially for funeral collections are available from the hospice free of charge. They can be left blank or printed with the name of your loved one. They make it easy for friends and family to let us know if we can claim Gift Aid on their donation, increasing its value at no cost to them. To order envelopes, please call our fundraising team on 01924 331401 or contact us via our website.
Request funeral envelopes
You may want to place the envelopes on seats before the service, or make them available for people to collect on their way into or out of the venue or after the service. You can also mention the collection in the Order of Service. Collecting tins and plates are also available free from the hospice. The funeral director should be able to advise you on what is permitted at the venue.
You may wish to set up a Tribute Page which shows the total donated to commemorate your loved one. A Tribute Page can include the funeral collection and any other ways friends and family have given in memory, such as Tree of Life dedications, event sponsorship and one-off donations.
