Gifts in Wills and Donations in Memory

In Memory Giving

In memory giving is when the friends and family of a loved one who has passed away make a donation in their memory.

Many families ask for donations to a charity that was special to their loved one instead of flowers at their funeral.

Donations can be sent to the charity itself, via the funeral director, who passes them on to the charity, or they can be made online at


Gifts in Wills

Friends and family come first. But after you have provided for your loved ones when you are gone, you can also make a huge contribution to future generations by leaving a gift to Reading Mencap in your will.

Gifts left to us are very important and enable us to continue our work for people with a learning disability, their families and carers. Past legacies have enabled us to replace our old minibus, carry out improvements to our Victorian building, and invest in setting up our ME Day Activity Service.
