Information for funeral directors
Many families choose to celebrate the life of a loved one by making a donation to the British Lung Foundation in their memory. Frequently, these donations are collected at the funeral service, sometimes instead of floral tributes.
Last year we raised a record amount of £1.05 million from people donating in memory of loved ones, allowing us to invest even more into research, support and campaigning for clean air and healthy lungs.
To make the process of collecting donations as simple as possible for you, we can provide you with materials in advance.
You can request the following from us prior to a service, get in touch with us by emailing [email protected].
- Pew collection envelopes
- Gift Aid forms- we are able to claim 25p from Inland Revenue for every £1 donated with completed Gift Aid Forms.

Saying thank you to families
We would love to express our gratitude to the deceased’s family for thinking of us during this time. If you provide us with the name of the next of kin and their relationship to the deceased, we will be able to write to personally thank them for their generosity. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic our thank you letters are taking a little longer than usual, we thank you for your patience during this time.
With the continued support of donations made in memory, we will be able to continue to offer hope, health and a voice.
If you would like any further details about donations or our work at the BLF, please do get in contact at [email protected].
