DONATE IN MEMORY OF A LOVED ONE
Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a positive way of commemorating their life, whilst giving something back to a charity that has been close to their hearts. Many families and friends choose to remember a loved one by making a donation in their memory to mark significant dates such as birthdays or anniversaries, or perhaps instead of buying funeral flowers.

A gift left in your will can help us to continue our work with children and young adults with Down syndrome into the future. Your generosity could make a real difference to our children, young people, and their families, for years to come.
The amount can be large or small and can be a gift after your family and friends have been provided for. For example you could leave 99.9% of your estate to your family and friends and 0.1% as a gift to us and/or other charities of your choice.
Under present rules, a gift left to charity is free of Inheritance Tax.

Your event could be a sponsored event, a cake sale, a dress up day; anything that generates interest and you will enjoy doing.
The event can be as large or small as you want.
Once you’ve decided what you want to do please contact us as you will need to complete a form detailing your event and we can then help you to promote it. We can also provide collecting boxes, labels for buckets and posters. If you need any help just get in touch.
