Anne Robson Trust Receives National Lottery Funding

The Anne Robson Trust has received £95,000 of National Lottery funding to support its work in providing one-to-one compassionate listening, comfort and companionship to people nearing the end of their life in hospital.

Liz Pryor, Founder of Anne Robson Trust, said:

“We are extremely excited to receive transformational funding from The National Lottery Community Fund. We are a small, but rapidly growing charity, and are keen to expand our work across the East of England and beyond. This funding allows us to engage an East of England Area Manager to oversee work, and provide much-needed support and guidance to the Butterfly Volunteer Coordinators we work with.”

Memory Giving – Making it easy to donate in memory

It has become common to donate to charity in memory of a loved one at the time of the funeral.

Memory Giving aim to make the process appropriate, safe and secure for donors whilst supporting the family’s chosen funeral director to coordinate on your behalf.

Memory Giving is used by many of the leading funeral companies in the UK. The role of the funeral director is radically changing with an increased emphasis in marking a death with a more personal and individual event. Giving to charity in memory continues as a principle constituent of commemoration and recognition of the person, their values and their wishes.

The Anne Robson Trust has been lucky enough to be chosen by a number of families who have set up donation pages via Memory Giving.
