About Celebrating a Life

Celebrating a Life aims to bring people together to remember someone special and raise money for Sue Ryder.

Our website makes it easy to organise a personalised event in memory of your loved one. Events can take place anytime, anywhere – in your home, your workplace, in a pub, a restaurant or a community venue.

You can invite just a few members of your close family or all your friends on Facebook. The important thing is honouring your loved one and keeping their memory alive.
