Many people find setting up a tribute page to be a comforting and meaningful way to celebrate the life of a special person.

In a time when Coronavirus restrictions are impacting the arranging and attendance of funerals, these online pages can be a lovely place to share precious memories and photos. Friends and family can donate, fundraise in memory, and leave messages of support too.

Together, you create a lasting tribute, and in doing so help improve the lives of people affected by Crohn’s and Colitis.

You can also create a memory poster to display on our website, where you can share a couple of photos, and write a small message in memory. Create your memory poster today.

Create a special tribute on JustGiving

We are here for any support you need in setting up your special tribute page or memory poster.

I have been raising money for the charity since 2002, when I arranged a golf day in memory of my husband, Ian. Crohn’s & Colitis UK is a charity very close to my whole family’s heart, so to raise awareness and support other people is of the utmost importance to us.

The loss of my brave sister, Sophie, still leaves our family in pain, however within days of her passing we had set up a Justgiving page in her name and it was incredible to see how much she meant to so many people- the tributes that came flooding in were instrumental to our healing. To keep Sophie’s spirit alive, each year we are having a fundraising day in Sophie’s honour for Crohn’s & Colitis UK. Sophie never gave up- and neither will we!


in memory of her sister, Sophie
