Make a lasting tribute to your loved one by giving a donation to Perennial in their memory.

In-memory giving, otherwise known as In-Memoriam or tribute giving, helps your loved one to keep a link to their chosen charity after they have passed away, and can make a meaningful alternative to flowers. A gift donated in memory of your loved one can help you to remember them in a positive way by knowing that your generosity will bring hope to others.

Your gift will go towards providing support and advice for people who work in horticulture, and their families, when they fall upon hard times. In an industry which is often low paid and prone to injury, this could mean helping a tree surgeon who has a loss of income due to an injury, or helping a gardener back into work after they have been made redundant. Your support will make a difference to someone’s life, and is a special way of remembering your loved one.


How to make an in-memory donation

Supporting Perennial in memory of a loved one is a touching way to celebrate their life and create a lasting legacy that helps people working in horticulture, and their families, when they need it most. You can do this by:

  • Donating online – we would love to hear about who inspired the gift and what the charity meant to them
  • By post – cheques can be sent to Perennial, 115-117 Kingston Road, Leatherhead, Surrey, KT22 7SU
  • Setting up and sharing a JustGiving page or MuchLoved page to collect donations or fundraise in memory
  • Organising a collection on the day of the funeral or thanksgiving service.


Types of Gift

Most in-memory gifts are one-off donations made directly to the undertakers or to the family, via our website or through an external webpage set up to administer gifts in this way.

If you would like to provide regular support, you can set up a standing order directly with your bank, or create a direct debit, which can be done here.

If you are a UK taxpayer you may be able to gift aid your donation which means we can claim back the basic rate of tax which you have paid on any charity donations, totalling 25p for every £1 that you donate.
