Gifts in wills

Giving donations to Beatson Cancer Charity in memory of a loved one is a poignant way of remembering them, and a positive way to make a difference in their name.

Many people do this by requesting donations at their loved one’s funeral or memorial service, often in lieu of flowers. If this is something you would like to do, please call us on 0141 212 0505 or ask your chosen funeral director for advice on organising a collection.

A simple way to let family and friends know about your collection in memory is to include a request in any obituary notice you may place, or simply to tell your family and friends of your wishes.

Beatson Cancer Charity can give you contact details for Funeral Directors in the west of Scotland, most of whom are happy to organise a collection for you. We supply funeral directors with collection envelopes and donation submission forms so that they can pass collections to us on behalf of families who request donations rather than floral tributes at a funeral.
