Hi there,

I am a Bereavement Officer at the Queen's Medical Centre Hospital. My team are currently on a fundraising endeavour to raise money for a new department and, in the new year, we are embarking on a series of fundraising events. We would love it if one of those events could come in the form of a Death Cafe for people to gather, drink tea, eat cake and of course, talk about death! However, I was wondering if we are allowed to have donation buckets for the bereavement department at the event or whether this is something that you discourage. 

Thank you in advance for your advice and guidance,



Hi Hannah,

You can have donation buckets in this case, though they should only be on a table/ floor nearby rather than individuals being directed to them - we appreciate you asking this, as not all fundraising is appropriate at a Death Cafe.

All the best,
