Many patients, their families, friends and other supporters of FORCE Cancer Charity request that money is donated to FORCE rather than flowers at a funeral. This is a very personal choice and we give a heartfelt thank you to families and friends for supporting us in this way.
The funeral director will look after all cash and cheques given by family and friends in memory. Normally there is a collection plate at the back of the church or crematorium. We would recommend that gifts are placed in envelopes and sealed.
We have suitable envelopes available from FORCE, which can also be used if you would like to Gift Aid your donation and we would ask that any cheques be made payable to FORCE Cancer Charity.
Cheques can be sent to the funeral directors by those not able to attend the funeral service. For this reason donations can take up to 3 months to be sent to the charity. A letter of acknowledgement is sent out to the next of kin at this point.
Cheques can also be sent straight to the FORCE Cancer Support Centre at our address: FORCE Cancer Charity, Corner House, Barrack Road, Exeter, Devon EX2 5DW

Ways to remember
You can create a page in memory of a relative or friend, collect donations for charity in place of flowers and allow fundraisers to raise money in remembrance. We work with Virgin Money Giving and their detailed step by step guide to set up your tribute page contains all the information you will need.
Creating a web page allows you to write a message about the person you are remembering and add a photo. Other friends and family members can donate on this page and memories can be shared. Funds from these pages will come directly to the charity.
To discuss further please call Oly on 01392 406150.
Take a look at our event calendar and perhaps you would like to take part in an event to remember somebody. Did they love cycling, running, walking, baking – what could you do in their memory?
