‘In Memory’ collections
A collection at a loved one's funeral is a very valuable way to support us. Not only does it raise funds for us immediately, it also really helps us by putting us in peoples' minds for future donations. We are always really appreciative when the family of someone we have supported helps us in this way.
In addition to having a collection plate as people leave the ceremony, you can also arrange for donations to be sent to the funeral directors by people who are not able to attend. You can also ask for people to donate instead of sending flowers.
Please contact us if you would like any advice on arranging an 'In Memory' collection.
In Memory of Gordon Trow
A collection in memory of Gordon paid for a new laptop for NFDIS.
Here is a photo of his wife Mrs Janet Trow presenting the laptop to NFDIS Chief Executive Jacki Keable
In Memory of Anthony (Tony) Taylor
His wife Eileen said: ' Your kindness over the years for advice and form filling out was so helpful. Me and Tony would not have been able to do it without you all.'
Tony was a wonderful caring man and never once moaned about his illness and was grateful for every day what ever it threw at him. His passion apart from family was his fishing and football . many a day on the river bank tooled up with all disability things needed but nothing would stop him ..apart when he fell in the River Avon and had to be rescued by the emergency service.....but the sun came out he dried off and carried on...that was him a funny man with a big character. A collection was gratefully received by NFDIS to support our service.
