Funeral Partners has helped collectively raise £3m for different charities in the past five years through its partnership with memorial tribute charity Much Loved.
Much Loved is an online platform that lets families and friends “create and contribute to digital memorials for their loved ones”, which contains the funeral notice information and the ability to donate to charities and good causes in their memory.
Since partnering in 2015, Funeral Partners which has 200 funeral homes across the UK has raised nearly £250k for Cancer Research UK through tribute pages set up by the company.
In addition, the company has raised £116k for the British Heart Foundation over the last five years, and a further £205k for the Woking and Sam Beare Hospice.
Richard Baker, account manager at MuchLoved, said: “Being a forward-looking company, Funeral Partners was an early adopter of MuchLoved and the services we provide. Fast forward five years and it has proven to be a wonderful foresight.
“The income of our charity partners has suffered significantly over the last year as restrictions have caused the cancellation of most, if not all, their traditional revenue sources.”
Kelly Hailou, marketing director at Funeral Partners added: “MuchLoved served as a real lifeline for their charity partners across the UK in 2020, as well as a place for many families to come together in an online space and share pictures, videos and memories to remember their loved ones.”
