In Memory Giving

Celebrate and honour your loved one’s life by helping a family enjoy a holiday for the first time

Donating or fundraising in memory of your loved one, family member, colleague, friend or neighbour is a very special and meaningful way to remember them. 

Transform memories into a gift that will last a lifetime for a family facing tough times – a holiday or break away.  Their memory will be felt in the squeals as children paddle in the sea for the first time, enjoy a picnic on a parade, fly a kite or walk barefoot on the sand. In the smiles and selfies that mum finally manages to coax out of a troubled teen. In the snatched moments of lightness that mums, dads, young carers, grannies and grandads feel in the brief moments away from the day-to-day realities of a tough situation. 

We are always incredibly touched to receive donations in someone’s memory and find great comfort in helping a memory to live on in a meaningful way. Please do tell us about the person you are remembering or honouring. 

Thank you for helping families get time away together, often for the first time ever.

Create a Just Giving page

You will be prompted through the process and at the end, can simply share the link. Family Holiday Charity will receive the donation directly, so after the page is set up, there’s no administration for you to complete. People who give are able to leave donations anonymously or leave a message.

Take part in an event or challenge

Some people are motivated to remember their loved ones through achieving a goal or challenge on their behalf.
