Set up a tribute fund

Asking family and friends to donate to Fight Bladder Cancer, as part of saying goodbye, can offer comfort. For many people, making a donation in memory of a loved one can be a positive way to celebrate their life.  

An online tribute page is a way for family and friends to gather and share treasured memories of a loved one. We work with our trusted partner MuchLoved to help you create a unique and lasting tribute. The page can be fully customised and through it you can share information about a funeral or memorial event. People donating can leave messages of remembrance, light candles that will burn on the page forever and share cherished photos. You'll be able to see the total amount raised for Fight Bladder Cancer.

To create a page, please visit the MuchLoved website. We hope that the page will bring comfort to you and your loved one’s friends and family.

Every gift we receive goes directly to support other people affected by bladder cancer. 

We are so grateful to those who choose to request donations to Fight Bladder Cancer in memory of their loved ones.

Donations will ensure that pioneering research takes place, and expert information is shared, to help suffering with bladder cancer become a thing of the past. 

Supporter stories

Many families choose to donate in memory of those they love.

Donald Hampson died from bladder cancer in March, following his diagnosis 13 years ago. Survived by his loving family: wife Pat, daughter Carole and sons, Jeff and David along with 11 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. We were incredibly grateful to Donald’s family and friends who donated in his memory, raising more than £950 for Fight Bladder Cancer.

In tribute to Sally Hurley, the much-loved wife, mother, loving grandmother and friend to many who passed away in February, friends and family gave to Fight Bladder Cancer, raising a wonderful £650. This money went directly to help support others affected by bladder cancer.

We were incredibly grateful to Matthew and Sam who established a donation page in memory of their stepdad Kevin Eyre. Kev, much-loved husband of Sue, died on 4 August after a courageous and bravely fought battle with bladder cancer and we are honoured to have received donations given in his memory. Huge thanks to his family and friends who gave so generously; their fundraising page reached nearly £2,000.

When Sarah Foster passed away in August, husband Neil knew immediately that Sarah would have wanted family and friends to give donations in her memory to Fight Bladder Cancer. We were so thankful to all those who gave in Sarah’s memory. 

In memory of her dear husband, Michael Gibson, Elaine chose to set up a Facebook fundraiser for Fight Bladder Cancer. Her friends, family and loved ones gave generously and we are hugely grateful to have received over £1,300 from Michael's tribute page. Thank you so much to everyone who donated.

Arrange a funeral collection

If you’ve recently lost someone to bladder cancer, asking for donations as part of a funeral or memorial service can be a meaningful and positive action. The funeral director will be used to making these arrangements.

If you are collecting funds yourself, you could pay these in via our donation page. Please let us know in the message that the donation is in memory, so we can say thank you in an appropriate way. 

You can also give us a call or email us to discuss options.

Take on a challenge 

You might want to do something ambitious or courageous in memory of your loved one? We have a range of ideas about ways to challenge yourself

Please do get in touch if you're thinking of fundraising for a loved one, we'd love to know about them and also help support your fundraising. 

Make a donation 

You might simply want to make a donation in memory of your loved one. Please leave us a message about your friend or family member and the reason for your donation.

Or you might want to remember them in your own will, by leaving a legacy gift to Fight Bladder Caner in their memory.

We really are grateful and will spend your donation with great care to change lives for the better.
