Funeral Donations

Hollowells will receive donations being made in memory of a loved one.
All donations received by us are banked into our special Charities account at the NatWest Bank, Northampton. A strict account of all donations is kept and a list of donors, with the total that has been donated, is notified to the family.

  • No administration fees are applied, every penny goes to the nominated charity or charities.
  • Each account is held open for 6 to 8 weeks following the funeral.
  • Cheques can be made to the Charity or to Hollowells.

gift-aid-logo‘Gift Aid’ is a simple way of increasing the amount of a donation.
This is because for every £1 donated the charity receives 25p from the Inland Revenue in tax that you have already paid. You can only use ‘Gift Aid’ if you are a U.K. taxpayer.

How to Donate?

  • There will be a collection box and Gift Aid forms at the funeral.
