Celebrating the life of a loved one by raising money in their memory for Abbie's Army.
Sometimes taking part in, or organising a specific fundraising event in remembrance of a loved one, can be a positive way to celebrate and honour their memory. For some this can develop into annual events, often to mark poignant dates such as birthdays and anniversaries. In memory pages provide a simple and sensitive way for your supporters to raise money online to remember a loved one.
And when someone makes an in memory page, a collection page is automatically created. It brings together all the fundraising happening in memory of one person, and acts as a lasting legacy.
Here is how to set up your page
