Donating in the memory of someone you love is a great way to honour their memory.
You can make a real difference by creating your very own Diabetes UK ‘Donate in Memory’ tribute page. This new platform lets you collect donations, share memories and fundraise in memory of your loved one with family and friends for years to come.
The online tribute pages are also powered by JustGiving, so you can link pages to your existing account if you have one. It’s really easy to use and you can go back to it in the future as a way of celebrating the life of someone who has died. You can also add your own messages and photos along with each donation.
For a world where diabetes can do no harm
Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK. More than dementia and cancer combined.
We fight diabetes by funding research, improving care, providing support and making sure everyone knows how to live well with their condition.
A special tribute
The Baldwin family fundraised in memory of their son, Peter, who tragically passed away from undiagnosed type 1 diabetes. They raised over £65,000 while campaigning to raise awareness of type 1 diabetes and its diagnosis in young children.
Funeral collection envelopes
You can ask for us to send you a pack of in memory envelopes for free, which can be used to collect donations at an event or in place of flowers at a funeral.
