Without the generosity of people like you, our work would simply not be possible.
There are many ways for you to get involved and support The Brigitte Trust, helping those living with a life-limiting illness. You can take part in an event, leave a gift in your Will, set up a regular donation or simply remember us when you next shop online.
Leave a gift in your Will
Remember The Brigitte Trust in your Will.
Leaving a gift in your Will to the Brigitte Trust is a lasting memorial and can provide us with much needed funds to continue helping others facing a life limiting illness.
There are several different ways to leave a gift in your Will. All are straightforward and easy to arrange when speaking with a solicitor. An initial discussion is often provided free of charge. The charges for the actual writing of the Will vary but your solicitor can give you an idea of these during your first meeting. Often only two meetings will be necessary.
Give in memory
Pay your respects to someone special who has died, whilst helping us reach out to people who need us in the future
Thank you for considering funeral donations to The Brigitte Trust. We’re grateful for every donation made, whilst those in memory of someone we have supported are particularly special to us.
Many people feel that a funeral collection is a way of paying respect to the person who has died, whilst helping us provide support for people who need us in the future.
If you would like to organise funeral donations to The Brigitte Trust in lieu of flowers, your Funeral Director will be able to talk you through the process. If you would like our special In Memory envelopes for those attending, please call us 01306 881816 or contact us.
The Brigitte Trust runs fundraising events throughout the year with something for everyone to enjoy. As a small team we are delighted with approaches from anyone who has a fundraising idea to share. We’ll supply all the fundraising backup you will need like t-shirts, buckets and banners.

Sending traditional greeting cards costs time, money and our planet. Why not turn the cost of buying and posting cards into donations to support us. You can use this website to send e-cards for all occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s day, Mothering Sunday, Good Luck, Thinking of you and more.
