Donate in memory

Make a donation in memory of a loved one, a very personal way to remember somebody special.

You’ll help world-class research into lung disease happen. You'll help support thousands of people who call our helpline. And you'll even help us to change the law to protect more people from lung disease.

Breath of Life tribute funds


You can also view tributes in our Tribute Garden

Breath of Life fund is a simple way to pay a lasting tribute to someone precious to you. Once you’ve set up your fund, it’s easy for you and other friends or family to donate to.

When your fund reaches £2,000 we’ll dedicate a tree in memory of your loved one. And when the fund reaches £5,000 we’ll name a star after them - which will appear on the Intergalactic Star Database for eternity.
