Instead of giving flowers at the funeral, many people now prefer to ask relatives and friends to make a donation to support the work of a favourite or particularly meaningful charity. This is a lovely way to remember a loved one and an effective way to ensure that the life-saving work done by EMICS continues. Your funeral director will often be able to handle this on your behalf.
In addition, you may also choose to open up a JustGiving Donation page for your friends and family to donate and remember your loved one. It gives those who may not be able to attend the funeral the opportunity to contribute in a different way. This can be important for friends and family as we manage the Covid-related restrictions involving the number of people who can attend a funeral.
Leaving a gift in your will to support the work that EMICS does will make a difference to the lives of seriously ill and injured people in the East Midlands. These ‘Legacy Gifts’ ensure that we can continue our vital work across the region – supporting the NHS and saving lives.
Your will can provide you with the comfort of knowing that the people who matter to you, in the East Midlands, will benefit from your legacy. When you add a charity you care about, like EMICS, your will becomes an incredibly powerful force for good.
