Fundraise for your birthday or anniversary

Whether you’re marking an important birthday or a milestone anniversary, there are plenty of ways you can celebrate whilst making a difference. Here are a few ideas:

Hold a party:

Donations in lieu of gifts

Ask your guests to make a donation to Breast Cancer Now instead of buying a present.

  • Set up an online page: to make it simple for your family and friends to donate, just set up an online JustGiving page. Share some information about why you’ve chosen to raise money for Breast Cancer Now and make sure you ask your friends to add gift aid if they can. You could also set up a fundraiser on Facebook - just make sure to send us a link to your page.
  • Shout about it: share the link to your JustGiving page on social media, via WhatsApp and over email.
  • Share your impact: get in touch with us at and we can give you some examples of how donations of £5, £10 or £20 can help support people living with breast cancer. You can then share these with your friends and family to encourage them to donate.

Fundraise at your wedding

Giving your guests our lovely place cards and wristbands as wedding favours is a meaningful way to support people affected by breast cancer, while helping to make your big day extra special.
