Donating to charity in memory of someone you love is a very special way of remembering them.

There are several ways that you can fundraise in memory and we have listed a few ideas below. Fundraising in memory is a very personal thing to do so if you would like our help with an idea that you have or there is anything we can do to support you, please let us know. If you have any questions or there is anything we can help with, please contact us.
However you choose to donate, you will be supporting families through every step of their half a heart journey.

Funeral collection

To remember your loved one at the funeral you could ask for donations in lieu of flowers. Many funeral directors can collect donations for you and forward them to your chosen charity so you have something less to worry about.

If you decide to send the donations to us yourself, please include a note with them so we can thank you. If you would prefer to transfer the money directly into our bank account, please contact us for our bank details.

In memory donation page

Another way to collect in memoriam donations is to set up an in memory page online. Using Virgin Money Giving you can create a personal page that you can invite friends and family to donate to. All money donated is sent directly to us so you don’t have to worry about sending it to us. Once your fundraising has finished we will send you a thank-you letter so you can be confident your fundraising has been used to help families in need.

Personal donation

You could also choose to remember someone by making a personal donation. This can be either a single donation or a regular contribution. To make a donation please visit our Make a Donation page. If you would like us to contact the next of kin of the person you are remembering, tell us their details and we will write them a letter.

Lights of Love

Every year at Christmas we offer the parents and families of children with only half a heart the opportunity to remember their special children by lighting a light on our tree of memory and leaving a dedication. The lights can be lit both in memory and in celebration of a life.

In memory fundraising

Many people choose to undertake a personal challenge in memory of someone. From walks to skydives and bake sales to marathons there are lots of ideas of different activities you can do in memory in our fundraising section. If you are planning your own event either let us know or fill out our fundraising form; we’re happy to help you in any way we can.

    A few weeks ago, we shared a news article about John and Kate Carlton who have been fundraising for Little Hearts Matter. This family’s amazing support doesn’t stop there, as their 9 year old daughter May also arranged for her school to take part in a non-uniform day for Little Hearts Matter. She put together a PowerPoint presentation and spoke to her Headteacher who agreed to hold a fundraising day for LHM.

    Just look at how many donations were received on the day – well done May, you’re a star! ❤️ To get involved and register your fundraising, click here: www.lhm.org.uk/get-involved/fundraising/register-your-fundraising/

    Youth Support

    There are young people living with half a heart across the country, many aged between 11 and 18. It is massively important for all of these brave young people to have access to the care, guidance and support they need – allowing them to live life to its full potential that their heart will allow.

    Lexie runs our Youth Services, supporting our youth members in a variety of ways, throughout their half a heart journey. These young members are invited to Activity Weekends and Education Days where they will explore their heart condition and seek solutions to the challenges that having half a heart brings. They will also have an opportunity to meet with other young members, online and in person, making friendships and helping them feel less alone.

    Did you know our youth members also consist of siblings? We know it can be a tough road for them too, so they also have a chance to chat with each other for support from people their age that truly understand. You can find out more about our Youth Services by clicking here www.lhm.org.uk/youth-zone/
