Visit the place that’s special to you both

Why not raise money in their memory as you walk, run, swim or cycle to your special place?

If you can’t get to your special place, you can dedicate a location anywhere in the world to their memory on our virtual map. You can add their name, a photo and a short message.

Start a new hobby or learn a new skill in their memory

If you can’t meet your friends and family in person, send the recipe via email or post, and cook together virtually.

Collect donations on special occasions

Your page is a place where your family and friends can leave messages and share memories, while also supporting Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Request collection envelopes

If the funeral or memorial service has not yet been held, we can provide collection envelopes which can be gathered on the day or sent back at a later date. Funeral Directors often help out with this process.
