We understand how losing someone you love dearly can be such a difficult, sad time and perhaps the hardest thing you will ever have to face. For many, giving something back is often a small comfort when looking for a way to remember and honour the person who you have lost. This kind of donation is incredibly special to us as it means that we are able to continue to run our services and help many more children and young people with complex disabilities, often life limited, to have the very best time with their friends doing amazing activities!
There are a number of ways which you can give in memory.
You can make a one-off or monthly donation in somebody’s name online, letting us know who the donation is in memory of.
Collect donations at a funeral or memorial
BDCPS are always there to help as much as we can to support you with these difficult times. When your loved one passes away, we will endeavour to help as much or as little as you would like us to. This could be as simple as folding the orders of service, to providing collection tins and buckets and helping out. Many people now are choosing to ask for donations rather than flowers, and we are very grateful if you would like to choose BDCPS – it will make a lasting difference to the work we do.
