Your wedding day

  • Make your big day unforgettable for your guests with lifesaving favours – we have some beautiful pin badges (£2 each) that they can keep forever. Get in touch to find out more!  
  • You can ask your family and friends for a donation instead of gifts, and be sure to show them the difference their money could make.
  • We can send you collection tins to have at the reception, and you can hold sweepstakes for anything and everything – who will catch the bouquet? How long will the best man’s speech be? Who will well up first?!  
  • Set up a JustGiving page so if there’s anyone who can’t come and celebrate your big day in person, they can still support from afar.

Throwing a party

  • Whether it’s your birthday, retirement or anniversary, why not ask for donations to Anthony Nolan instead of gifts – make sure you tell people all about the incredible difference their money could make.
  • We can send you collection tins to have around the venue and posters to help you spread the word – people could throw in a couple of quid for song requests!
  • Organise a raffle on the big day and encourage people to buy tickets before they arrive! You could ask local businesses to help provide the prizes. 
  • Set up a JustGiving page so if there’s anyone who can’t make the party, they don’t miss out on being able to donate.

A big anniversary

  • Think about the occasion your marking and link your fundraising – if you’re marking a 10-year wedding anniversary, ask for a £10 donation.
  • You don’t have to be throwing a party either, you can post on social media asking people to help you save lives rather than send cards! Setting up a JustGiving page is a perfect way to organise this.
