Fundraise with your celebration

Make your birthday, anniversary or wedding even more special

A WCRF card that reads: 'thank you for your support'Giving in celebration is an inspiring and heartwarming way for friends and family to mark your special occasion while fundraising for a cause close to your heart.

From weddings and anniversaries to retirements, your special day can help us fund research into how we can prevent cancer and help keep loved ones together.

Pledge your birthday

Do something incredible this year and pledge your birthday to a future free from preventable cancer. It’s so simple to get started:

  • Set up your own fundraising page on Facebook or another platform such as JustGiving
  • Send your page to friends and family asking for donations instead of gifts

All the money you raise will have a huge impact on our cancer prevention work, so don’t forget to thank everyone once you’ve hit your target!

Using your wedding favours to support our charity is a lovely way to make a real difference. You can thank your wedding guests in a unique and special way by ordering our colourful pin badges. Each badge comes with a personalised table card for each guest (15cm x 10.5cm) so you can let your loved ones know about your incredible contribution to our vital cancer prevention work.
