Giving in memory

A special way to remember a loved one. 

A donation to Coastguard is a wonderful way to remember someone. 

While traditionally flowers are used as tributes, many now think about giving a more lasting tribute for their loved ones. Gifts can be small or large, in lieu of flowers at a funeral or as a tribute to a life well lived.

When making a donation in memory of a loved one, Coastguard are able to let surviving family members know that a donation has been made, if that is your wish.

To make a special gift in memory of a loved one, please make your donation online now. If you would like, please enter the name of the person you are remembering in the 'comments' box.

If you want to find out more above giving in memory of a loved one please contact Samara Somerville-Petch or call her on 027 250 4660.
