Giving a gift in memory of a loved one is a special way to remember them. You’ll be honouring their life whilst making a real lasting impact to the lives of people living with disabilities across Scotland.

If you’ve lost a loved one you might be considering how you wish to commemorate their life. We’ve got some ideas that you might like to consider. From funeral collections to challenge events, we’re here to help you remember your loved one with Cornerstone. 

“[Cornerstone] never made it feel like a job to our family and were there every day and night without fail. Polly had cerebral palsy and epilepsy which put many restrictions on the life she led, and resulted in many hospital admissions, operations, and often lots of pain. But she was so much more than this. She was strong. And busy. And led a happy and full life.”

Eliza is taking part in a fundraising challenge for Cornerstone in memory of her late sister.

Set up an In Memory page

You can create an In Memory page on our website. An In Memory page provides the opportunity for friends and family to come together to share memories of a loved one and celebrate their life. Anyone who leaves a message on your bespoke page has the option to leave a nominal donation to Cornerstone to further our work.

Funeral collections

A funeral can be a way to celebrate the life of your loved one. Perhaps you might like to do a collection for Cornerstone at their funeral? Coronavirus restrictions have meant fewer people can attend funerals. You might wish to look at an In Memory page as a lovely way to bring family and friends together, even if they can’t be physically present.
