Weddings 

However you're choosing to celebrate your special day, we would value your support. We can help you with favours and gift envelopes, so if you need any more information please get in touch.

Wedding favours

We have our brand new Cardiomyopathy UK pin badges that you can choose to have as wedding favours for your guests. At just £1.50 each they are a fantastic way to show your support on your big day in an elegant way, and involve your guests.  We can also provide small cards to accompany the badges free of charge, either A6 cards to stand on tables, or smaller business card sized flat cards to add to place settings.  These can have a message from the bride and groom to your guests, explaining what the badge is for, along with your names and the date of your wedding, or details of your choosing.

If you are interested in having our pin badges as wedding favours you can either buy them through our online shop or please contact the fundraising team.

An alternative gift list

Why not ditch the multiple toasters and ask for donations instead of a gift list? Friends and family can make a donation to an online fundraising page, and it only takes minutes to set up. They can even Gift Aid their donations so that we receive an extra 25% from HMRC, without it costing them a penny extra. 

You can visit either JustGiving or VirginMoneyGiving and set up a page in a few minutes. You can include information about your wedding, photos, videos, a thank you message and links to social networks such as Facebook. You can share the link across your networks, and by using an online site you don't have to worry about cash or cheques, and the Gift Aid is automatically taken care of too. Don't forget to include the link in your invitation, and a reminder close to the big day is always very helpful.  Afterwards you can thank everyone with an update about how much has been raised and how their support has helped.

Shopping online

Don't forget to encourage your friends and family to buy your gifts through Give as you Live, as with each purchase we receive a small donation from the retailers. It's totally free to use, and they don't pay a penny extra! To learn more visit our armchair fundraising page.

Gift envelopes

We can provide you with free gift envelopes to give to your guests, which enable us to claim back the tax on their donations, meaning that every £1 donated is worth £1.25, at no extra cost to the donor. Please note that cash should not be sent to us in the gift envelopes, as it is sadly unlikely to reach us.

Cash donations

If you are collecting cash on the big day the best thing is to have someone help you count it at the end of the day, and secure it safely. You can then either send a cheque to us or make a payment through our donation page. If you have set up an online fundraising page you can also pay the money in there.
