Wedding Fundraising

There are a lot of tasks when organising your Wedding Day, why not tick one off by supporting East Cheshire Hospice! There are many ways in which you can support us, like asking for donations instead of gifts when sending out your invites or choose a wedding favour to gift to your guests on the day:

  • Give them a Hospice scratch card for their chance to win, you’re already lucky in love, so now share your luck with your guests! Costing £1 per scratch card, guests can win up to £200, request your scratch cards.
  • Gift them a Hospice badge, keyring, pen or Bride and Groom teddy to show them your support to the Hospice, we suggest a donation of £1 per badge or keyring. Find our more about Wedding Favours.
  • Donate directly to the Hospice in lieu of favours and let your guests know you’ve supported us when making your speeches.

You could raise some extra pennies with the Best Man/Women’s speech sweepstake, or even turn it into a game of bingo!

However you choose to support, know that you’re making a difference to lives of local people that need our care. If you’re interested in supporting us on your Wedding Day, please complete our online form and let us know.

Other ways to give in celebration

If you would like to collect donations when you send out invitations or on the day of your celebration, we can provide donation envelopes. Donation envelopes area a great option to give a gift in celebration, if your guest completes the gift aid details in full, we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 donation to us. This increases the value of the donation by 25%. Request your envelopes via the online form.

The easiest way to fundraise for your celebration is by setting up a Just Giving page. It’s a simple way to collect donations and these go directly to the Hospice. You can also share photos and any updates with your guests. You could include the page link or QR code in your invitations. To start a page visit Just Giving’s website.

You may choose to give a gift in memory of a loved one on a special anniversary. A lovely way to do this is by creating a Sunflower Tribute. We have more information about creating a tribute on our Gifts in Memory page.
