For families FAQs

Thank you for considering donating to Guide Dogs in lieu of flowers at the funeral of your loved one.

If you’d like, we can send you special collection envelopes which are pre-paid with a special donation form, so that guests can donate at a time that’s right for them. The envelopes can then be returned to you to be forwarded to us, or sent directly to us. We can then thank everyone who’s donated.

To order your envelopes, please call us on 0800 953 0113 or email

You can send them for the attention of the Gifts in Memory team to:

Guide Dogs
Burghfield Common
