A place to Donate in Memory

Create an online space to Donate in Memory of your loved one and build a lasting home to share stories, memories and photos about your special someone. With your fundraising, you’ll be supporting Diabetes UK and joining the fight against diabetes, the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time.

Create a lasting tribute

After losing someone special, it can be hard to know what to do. It’s likely that people will want to help, and you’ll want to remember and celebrate their life. The way they made you smile, the funny photos and how they were there for you.

Your Donate in Memory home is for you and your friends and family to create a lasting tribute for your loved one. It’s easy to share your page with those who matter most too.

Fundraise in their name

Your tribute is a place for people to raise money in your loved one’s name. Friends and family may wish to make a donation to mark special occasions or even run a marathon. However they choose to help, your page will be a permanent place to make a difference together for years to come.

Transform lives

Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK. More than dementia and cancer combined. That means we need to take action now. It’s a fight that involves all of us and we’re in it together.

Every penny raised on your Donate In Memory home will honour your loved one and will go towards creating a world where diabetes can do no harm.

It’s simple

It’s really easy to set up your Donate in Memory home. Follow the steps on the Donate in Memory homepage.

 

FAQs

I have collected money in-memory of a loved one previously, can this be added to a new account?

Once you log into your ‘Donate-in-memory' page you’ll see a button that says, ‘Import existing pages’. Click here and then select those pages that you’d like to connect.
