Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. It's a positive way to help make their memory last and to support Age UK Solihull's work to make life better for older people.
In Memory Collection
If you are organising a collection at a funeral or a memorial service, you may wish to ask friends and relatives of your loved one to make a donation to Age UK Solihull. Cash or cheques can be sent to us at The Core, Central Library Building, Homer Road, Solihull, B91 3RG. Please include your name and address, and the name of the person you are donating in memory of, so we can send a thank you letter in receipt of donation.
JustGiving Memory Page
This is a simple way to raise money online to remember a loved one. When you make an in-memory page, a collection page is automatically created, bringing together all the funds raised in memory of one person and acting as a lasting legacy.
Online Tribute Fund
You may wish to set up an online tribute page on a site such as Much Loved. You can do many things with a tribute page, including posting stories, sharing favourite pictures and memories, make a donation or use the page for events and fundraising. As everything is stored centrally everyone can access it at any time. A tribute also shows the total raised in your loved one’s name, so that everyone who has contributed can see what they have achieved.
You can join our Age Angels scheme and set up a regular gift to support our work and continue your loved one's legacy. Your gift could be any size and you can donate in memory of your loved one either monthly, quarterly or annually.
Send a tribute to your loved one
We would love to hear about your loved one who you have donated in memory of.
If you would like them to be featured on our website, please send us a photo of them along with a couple of sentences about them and why you decided to raise funds for Age UK Solihull in their memory.

12 April 1934 - 2 May 2023
Peter was born in Co Cavan, Ireland. He came to Birmingham in the late 1950s, where he met Angela, his wife of 60 Years. Peter was responsible for laying gas mains in the Midlands which would still be in service today. He lived in Dorridge for over 45 years.
A life celebrated by all his family.
Peter's family told us that they decided to collect donations for Age UK Solihull at his funeral, as we were here for him and his wife, who cared for Peter, to turn to for support and advice. They were both very grateful for the assistance we gave, and we are so grateful that they thought of raising funds for us to help more older people at this sad time.
