Remembering someone special with a gift in their memory
Your kind donation will help We are Beams to support disabled children and their families in Kent
Funeral and Memorial Collections
Donating in memory of someone is a meaningful and special way to pay tribute a loved one.
You may choose to do this by asking for donations instead of flowers at a funeral or memorial event.
Giving in Memory to Beams
By donating in memory to Beams you will be providing funds to help support disabled children and their families.
We can help by
- Providing collection envelopes that your family and friends can use to donate in lieu of flowers. These will allow us to claim gift aid to increase donations by 25%.
- We also have collection buckets which provide an easy way to donate.
- For online donations a quick and simple way for family and friends to donate is to set up a just giving page
Once all donations have been received these can be sent on line via our donate page or by post to We Are Beams, Allsworth Court, 38-40 St David’s Rd, Hextable BR8 7RJ
How will your Donation Help?
All donations are gratefully received and will help We Are Beams continue to provide support to children and young people with multiple learning difficulties, complex health needs, physical or sensory impairment, challenging behaviour, Autism or severe ADHD.
We support up to 360 families at any one time and need to raise £1.5 million to continue these services.
Here is a story about a child you will be supporting.
One of the many children who benefit from the services at Beams is Scarlet. Scarlet is 14 and has Phelan McDermid Syndrome a rare genetic condition which means she has severe learning difficulties and restricted speech.
Scarlet attends Beams once a week in term time, enjoys the holiday clubs and also stays at Dragons Retreat twice a month.
Mum Sharon is so thankful to all the staff at Beams, “When Scarlet attends Beams, it not only provides me with a chance to spend quality time with my other daughter, Sienna but I also know that Scarlet is in safe hands and she is having a great time. We see Beams as our second home, so much so, that often after school Scarlet asks to go to Beams as she enjoys it so much!
It really has been a lifeline for us as I am not lucky enough to have much other support. The whole team are fantastic with Scarlet and her needs and she really thrives on the friendly and fun environment”
Scarlet is just one of the children that benefits from Beams services, we aim to help 350 families in Kent at any one time.
