Your donation

Once we have received your donation, we will send you a letter of thanks. We will also send a personal thank you letter to the next of kin (if details are provided). We will also include your donation in our In Memory section of the MPS Magazine.

In memorium gifts in lieu of flowers

Flowers are a traditional way of showing you care when a relative or friend dies. Although most of us feel that there should be some flowers at a funeral it is often the desire of the immediate family to have wreaths and/or bouquets from themselves only. They will often request that In memoriam gifts in lieu of flowers are given to charity. Once the gift is received from the funeral directors, we will advise the next of kin of the total amount of donations received. It is possible to state in your Will which charity is to be the recipient of In memoriam gifts.
