Donations in Memory

Sadly, not everyone can live forever, despite the amazing care, dedication and skill provided by staff of the Wessex Neurological Centre. The loss of a family member or close friend is always a profoundly difficult time, which makes it all the more humbling that so many relatives choose to request that donations be made to Smile4Wessex in memory of their loved one. Funeral directors are of course well versed in such matters, and will handle and pass on such donations to any chosen charity, but you may also wish to create an online giving page through which messages of tribute can also be left.

There are two options in this respect, either by creating an 'In Memory' page via Virgin Money Giving, or by asking the funeral director to create a page using Memory Giving. By doing so you’ll be helping to create a lasting legacy in memory of someone you love – a legacy to celebrate and remember a life and which will be used to help save the lives of others.

If you would like further details of either of these options, please do not hesitate to contact us, or speak to your chosen funeral director and ask them if they can handle this for you.
