    Donations in lieu of flowers

    Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Thank you for asking your family and friends to donate to Cancer Council SA in lieu of flowers.

    How to organise donations in memory of your loved one

    Your funeral director can organise this for you. Cancer Council SA has relationships with funeral homes throughout South Australia and we work together to support you during this difficult time.

    All you need to do is inform your funeral home that you wish to have donations to Cancer Council SA in lieu of flowers and they will do the rest. We also have wonderful volunteers that can attend and collect donations at the funeral service for you, if you wish.

     

    How to inform guests to donate to Cancer Council SA in lieu of flowers

    Your funeral director can guide you on this but most commonly people write in the funeral notice:
    “In lieu of flowers a donation in memory of name to Cancer Council SA would be appreciated.”

     

    How will you know who donated in lieu of flowers

    After donations have been made in lieu of flowers, you will receive an acknowledgment letter with a summary of the thoughtful gifts of others. Each person who donates in memory of your loved one will receive a thank you letter and memorial bookmark.

     

    Thank you for choosing to honour the memory of your loved one by supporting Cancer Council SA.
