A local author who has written a best-selling funeral self-help book is donating the proceeds from sales throughout 2023 to Two Ridings.

Sarah Jones, founder of Full Circle Funerals on Skipton Road, Harrogate and author of Funerals Your Way,  chooses a different charity each year to benefit from her book sales.

Sarah has been a long-time supporter of Two Ridings, creating a Full Circle Fund to support local good causes and as a founding member of our Women in Business Fund, which soon opens to applications from charities and groups supporting women in the region.

Sarah said:

“Our funeral services have a natural role within the communities where they are based and I have always been extremely proud of the way the whole team embraces this, whether through fundraising, volunteering, partnerships or supporting events.

“By donating our 2023 book proceeds to Two Ridings Community Foundation we can help them to support lots of different hard working organisations that are meeting a need in their own communities.”

Two Ridings CEO, Jan Garrill, said:

“We are honoured to be chosen as the recipient of this year’s book sale proceeds and incredibly grateful for the ongoing support we receive from Sarah and her team.

“The money will mean we can help even more grassroots charities and community groups to continue their vital work.”


Funerals Your Way has lots of practical information to help people consider the choices available to them. It also includes helpful tips on wellbeing after bereavement.
