Leaving a gift in memory of a friend or a loved one is a wonderful way to remember them.

Your gift will help ensure seafarers and their families live dignified lives free from hardship. We’re grateful to you for thinking of The Seafarers’ Charity in this way.

Donating or fundraising in someone’s memory is a special way to remember a loved one.

How to donate in memory of a loved one

Make a donation

You can make a donation online using our simple and secure payment form. You set up a regular gift or make a one-off donation. You will also be able to tell us that your gift is in memory of a loved one.

A tribute page

You may like to set up a tribute page where friends and family can share their special memories and donate securely. Visit MuchLoved or Just Giving to set up your tribute page in just a few minutes. If you don’t have an account, you will need to register. Don’t worry – it only takes a couple of moments.

Funeral and memorial events

Asking friends or family to make a donation to The Seafarers’ Charity instead of flowers can be a fitting way to celebrate your loved one's life. It may also be a comfort to know that every donation given in their memory helps ensure hardworking seafarers and their families will never lack the support they need in times of hardship.

Any donations can be forwarded to us by cheque to The Seafarers' Charity, 8 Hatherley Street, LONDON, SW1P 2QT, or donate online.

We appreciate that funeral services have changed as a result of the pandemic – you may wish to invite friends and family to support your online tribute page instead.


Taking part in an event or organising an event in memory is a particularly inspiring way to remember a loved one. Whether it’s a run, a walk or a bake, your gifts will help to improve the lives of thousands of seafarers and their families in times of need. Please let us know if you are organising an in memory fundraising event by emailing events@theseafarerscharity.org.
