Candlelight Funds

Celebrate a life and give hope to thousands more.

If you would like to create an ongoing tribute to someone special, you might like to set up a Candlelight Fund in their name. 

A Candlelight Fund is a special fund in memory of a loved one who has died, where all donations made in their memory are combined to create a beautifully lasting tribute to them.

How it works

It can be a private act of remembrance – donating to mark special moments like your loved one’s birthday or anniversary – or you can invite others to join in too.

There are no targets, deadlines or minimum amounts involved. This is your fund and you can grow it in whatever way feels comfortable.
