DONATIONS IN LIEU OF FLOWERS
An alternative option to flowers which can help support the community.
Many families now request that mourners make a donation to a chosen charity rather than leaving funeral flowers.
It doesn’t mean that there won’t be any flowers at the funeral, just that floral tributes will be limited to immediate family, while others are invited to make a donation to MYMY
Collecting donations instead of flowers at a funeral can help MYMY continue to suport the community.
Most funeral directors are willing to collect donations in lieu of flowers, handling the administration of these gifts for you and making sure that they are passed to MYMY. However, sometimes mourners might prefer to make a simple one-off donation in memory of someone close.
