Funeral and memorial collections

Asking friends and family to donate through a funeral collection for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity is a lasting and meaningful way to pay tribute to your loved one.

However you chose to support us in memory of someone special, thank you. We are here to support you in any way we can.

How do I hold a funeral collection?

Thank you for considering supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) at the funeral of someone special. These kind gifts make a huge difference to the hospital.

There are two ways to hold a funeral collection. For online donations, please open an online in memory page using JustGiving. This will make it quick and simple for friends and family to support your fundraising.

You might also like to request collection envelopes that family and friends can use to make private donations. When all donations have been received, we will inform you of the total amount raised in memory of your loved one.

How do I pay in money raised at a funeral collection?

If you have money you need to send us please do so on our donate page. We’d be most grateful if you could be sure to indicate this is money raised in memory of someone special so we can ensure we communicate with you appropriately.
