Give in memory

Making a gift to celebrate the memory of someone special is a wonderful way to pay tribute to them.

Thank you for visiting this page during what might be an especially difficult time. We are so grateful to you for choosing to honour and remember a special person in your life by making a gift to Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis in their memory.

A loved one remembered can mean a better future for those in our community affected by pulmonary fibrosis.

How can we help?

If you are planning a funeral, memorial service or a celebration of life, we appreciate that this can be a particularly daunting process. Our thoughts are with you and if you'd prefer to talk to someone in person about making your gift or arranging a collection, let me introduce myself.

I am Sharon. I'm here to support you every step of the way. If you have any questions about tribute funds or other ways to donate in memory, please do get in touch either by email sharon@actionpf.org or by phone on 07376 321672

And remember, you are not alone. Our support line is available to you should you wish to reach out. You can email or call 01223 785725.

There are all sorts of ways to support APF in memory

Many people find comfort in remembering a loved one by supporting a cause close to their heart. Gifts in memory are very special and help us support those people affected by pulmonary fibrosis, raise awareness, campaign and fund vital research so we have hope for new treatments that could one day help lead to a cure.

However you choose to support us, you will help us create a better future for people affected by pulmonary fibrosis.

It would be wonderful indeed if, in the fullness of time, no one ever again has to face such a struggle for life as that imposed by IPF.

Making a donation

Funeral collections

  • Donations can be requested at a funeral or celebration of life service. perhaps in lieu of flowers. You can organise this yourself or ask your funeral director to manage this on your behalf.
  • Please get in touch to order donation envelopes. These provide the opportunity for UK taxpayers to enhance their donations by 25% with Gift Aid.
  • Forget-me-not seeds are available to purchase via our website as a living lasting memory.

Creating a tribute page

A lasting celebration of a special person, who may be a relative, friend or colleague can be a wonderful place to:

  • Share photos, stories, music and memories
  • Light candles and leave messages
  • Collect donations in memory
  • Publicise funeral arrangements

APF partners with MuchLoved, making it quick and easy to set up your tribute page at no cost. It is quick and easy to set up using the link above but for help with this please contact Sharon who can guide you through the process.

Wendy Jones tells us about her experience:

‘As a family we wanted to have a place where mum's family and friends could not only share thoughts, photos and memories but also donate to our chosen charity, Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis. MuchLoved provided that space at no cost to us and was really simple to set up.’

‘My family and I were amazed and comforted by the number of people who were to prepared to give their financial support.’
Ann Voigt, in memory of her husband Michael
