Legacies – leave a gift in your will
COSMIC relies heavily on the generosity and support of the families and friends of those whose lives have been touched by St. Mary’s PICU, or those who are fortunate enough to have had healthy children but who wish to help those who are not so lucky.
Paediatric intensive care is very expensive. Equipment and drugs are constantly being updated and research needs top-grade people.
A bequest in your Will would help us enormously in continuing to offer the quality of care we provide in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit.
Giving in Memory
Losing a loved one is difficult. Every second of their life was precious and you might like to remember them through doing something really positive to celebrate their life.
Through giving to COSMIC in memory of a special friend or family member, you can help us help sick children and their families through the most difficult of times. Your gift in memory of someone special could help hundreds of other lives, which could give you comfort through these hard times.
In Memory Online
Just Giving and Virgin money have set up in Memory scheme. Here you can create a donation page for someone in their memory, or a special profile which displays everyone who decides to donate or fundraise in their name. This is a lovely way to remember someone together whilst making a difference to so many lives through COSMIC.
COSMIC believes every person should be remembered with a day that celebrates their life and your happy memories together. How that day is created is up to each family, and we are lucky enough to have had families collect donations instead of flowers at their loved one’s funeral.
For this generous gesture, COSMIC offer collection tins and donation forms to make giving as easy as possible. Many funeral directors also accept cheques and donations in lieu of flowers, handle the administration and kindly post the funds to COSMIC.
