The loss a loved one is one of the hardest things ever to have to face, but during a time of sadness, finding a way in which to commemorate a life can bring a sense of comfort.
You might like to think about giving a gift in memory, to pay tribute to them and a cause that was close to their heart.
If you're organising the funeral, you may feel it's appropriate to ask friends and relatives to make a charitable donation instead of sending floral tributes. You can include a request in any notice you place in the newspapers and inform your funeral director. You can ask them to donate directly to Eyecare online, or to send donations to the funeral director who can forward them to us.
When family and friends are gathered for the funeral, a collection for charity could also be a fitting tribute. The easiest way is to collect all of the donations, bank them and then produce a cheque made payable to "Friends Eyecare Fund" which you can send to us, or donate online. Please remember to inform us of whom the donations are in memory of. We will send you an acknowledgement letter thanking you for the donation.
