The sad fact is that kidney disease can sometimes be a fatal condition. Dealing with the loss of a loved one whether a friend or family member, is a very difficult time. If you have suffered a recent loss, please accept our sincere condolences.
At times of bereavement, families often wish to make a donation in lieu of flowers for a loved one. If you are arranging a funeral and would like to advise friends and relatives to make a donation in lieu of flowers, we can supply you with special envelopes to send out with the funeral notice. To order these envelopes please call Victoria Thomson on 0161 276 6671
Donations can be used to fund vital research into kidney disease to save lives and help to provide a brighter future for those suffering from renal disease or contribute to the provision of specialist medical equipment. We hope you can take comfort from knowing that your kind support will benefit kidney patients both now, and in the future.
There are several ways to make an in memoriam donation – you may wish to visit the Fundraising Office in person. Funeral Directors are usually agreeable in offering to organise collection of contributions and take responsibility for forwarding them to us, or you can send a cheque made payable to Kidneys for Life to:
Kidneys for Life
Renal Research, 2nd Floor
Manchester Royal Infirmary
A donation to Kidneys for Life is a very special way to remember a loved one, helping give health and life to those who remain.
When you make an in memoriam donation, we will send a personal letter to the next of kin of the person honored by your donation with the total sum given and a list naming the donors. (The amounts of individual donations are never disclosed)
At Kidneys for Life, we are always particularly grateful for the gifts people make in memory of someone special, which serve both to support our work and pay tribute to the life of a much-loved person.
In the past, some families, friends and colleagues have told us that they would welcome the opportunity to continue supporting Kidneys for Life as a tribute to someone they have lost. By lighting up a light on our Tree of Remembrance you can create a tribute to a loved one, you are also able to put up a special photo on the tree.
