Giving in Memory

Giving in Memory is a special way for you to honour the memory of a loved one, friend, family member or colleague, and allows friends and family to come together to support Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind’s work.

Whether you would like to collect donations instead of flowers, take part in an event or organise your own celebration of a loved one’s life, we are happy to support you. As a small local charity, we are limited in resources, but we’ll do what we can to support your initiative.

If you would like any advice or information on giving in memory of a loved one, please do not hesitate to call us on 0161 330 9223.

Collecting at funerals

Simply collecting donations instead of flowers at a funeral can help us to continue to provide vital support for everyone affected by mental health problems.

Most funeral directors are willing to collect donations in lieu of flowers, handling the administration of these gifts for you and making sure they are passed to us.

Holding an event in memory of a loved one

Many of our supporters choose to celebrate a loved one’s life by holding an event or taking part in a challenge to honour their memory.

Having a pub quiz, cake sale, or cycling, running or swimming in aid of our charity are just some of the ways people have chosen to remember someone special, while raising vital funds for Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind. Please check out our JustGiving page for details on how to set this up.

Give a gift in your will

A gift in your Will can help support everyone with mental health problems. By leaving a gift in your Will, or legacy, to Tameside, Oldham and Glossop Mind you could help us continue to provide vital support and services for everyone with mental health problems.

We have had monies left in legacy to us in the past, and we would like to promote more of this kind of support – it makes all the difference to be able to plan our future delivery of services for those who need it most.

Leaving a legacy is often a much simpler process than you might think. To help guide you through the process and help answer any questions you may have, you may wish to speak to a specialist solicitor you can contact us on 0161 330 9223.
