Information about collections for funeral directors

We’re so grateful to you for overseeing funeral collections on our behalf.

While fulfilling the wishes of your clients, you’re also supporting work to transform healthcare for thousands of patients across the South West and beyond. We hope to make this process as easy as possible.

Making the greatest impact with funeral collections

We’re the official charity for North Bristol NHS Trust, covering Southmead and Cossham Hospitals, and Bristol Centre for Enablement.

Donations given to the area of greatest need enable us to make a difference where it is needed most across the Trust.

However, if a family is passionate about supporting a specific area of the hospital, please just let us know.

Encouraging Gift Aid with collection envelopes

Please encourage family and friends to use our collection envelopes at the funeral service so we can claim Gift Aid.

Gift Aid boosts donations by 25% at no extra cost to the donor. Every single penny makes a real difference.

Supporting families beyond funeral collections

We highly recommend giving family members our ‘Remember your loved one’ postcards.

These contain our details and the link to our ‘Remember your loved one‘ web page, where they can find information on setting up an online tribute page for their loved one. They’ll also have access to free bereavement counselling through GriefChat.

Request collection envelopes and postcards

Please contact Hannah to request collection envelopes and/or postcards, or if you have any other questions about funeral collections for Southmead Hospital.
