Festive fundraising update

December 2023

Thank you to everyone who has supported WAY in 2023. 

Santas take over London

Thank you to the team of ten WAY Santas from Irwin Mitchell who took part in the 4.5km Santa in the City run to raise money for WAY during Grief Awareness Week. That's not all - we also launched our legal partnership with them during the week.

As part of the partnership, Irwin Mitchell will be taking over the financial and legal helpline offering tailored support for WAY members aswell as creating joint promotional materials and campaigns, offering legal advice through clinics, podcast and webinars and supporting the WAY Operations team to create a toolkit to support our members.

Support WAY’s Christmas campaign

We’d love it if WAY members and supporters could take part in our Christmas Campaign to help raise vital funds for our Memorial Fund, which helps people who are struggling financially to join WAY and to attend WAY events. 

If you prefer, you can give directly to the JustGiving campaign page with every multiple of £25 giving the gift of WAY membership to someone who is struggling financially at this challenging time.

Don't Send Me a Card

Have you considered sending a digital card if you've missed the last date for posting Christmas cards? When you send a WAY Christmas card via Don't Send Me a Card you will also be supporting the charity.

Not only does it save paper, but you can also send them from the comfort of your home, which means one less trip out into the cold! ❄️

"WAY is a charity that no one wants to be a member of, but so many are glad that they have found because there is a whole community of people who understand what you are going through.

An annual WAY membership costs the charity £60 so every penny raised goes directly to make up the shortfall between this and the £25 fee paid each year by members.

I am incredibly grateful to everyone who has helped us to raise funds through these difficult economic times. "- WAY CEO, Stephanie Patrick
