How it works

A Celebration Lunch is a great excuse to get together with your loved ones this summer and celebrate a landmark year for Cardiomyopathy UK while enjoying some delicious food!

It really couldn't be easier:
 1. Grab your Celebration Lunch pack

Sign up for a free Celebration Lunch pack (includes 6 FREE recipe cards & donation box).

2. Spread the word

Tell your friends, family, and colleagues about your lunch and when and where you'll be hosting it. If you're a fan of social media, share your event on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with #30lunch.

3. GO GO GO!

Enjoy yourself and have a great time fundraising while catching up with your loved ones.

A good first step is to set a recommended donation amount for those wishing to attend. An example would be £5 per person, or £10 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. The amount is entirely up to you, and because it's a recommended donation, your guests can choose to donate as much or as little as they like.

If you're hosting your lunch in an office or at school, why not ask your guests to have a go at making one or more of the recipes themselves and run a taste test competition on the day. Offer up some prizes as incentives for the winners!

Still not sure how to collect funds from your lunch? Check out our ideas and inspiration page.

4. Collecting funds

Some people will prefer to give you funds in the form of cash, cheque, or bank transfer. If you'd like to collect Gift Aid on these donations, we'll include a separate form in your fundraising pack which will allow you to do this.

Alternatively, you can set up a Just Giving page which people can donate to using their computer, tablet, or smart phone. Funds donated to your Just Giving page will be sent to us automatically, removing the need for you to pay in your funds once your lunch has taken place. Your supporters will also be able to claim Gift Aid on their donations quickly and easily through your Just Giving page.

5. Pay your funds in

Once your lunch has taken place and you've had a rest, pay in your funds. We'll put the money raised to good use, to help support families affected by cardiomyopathy and save lives.

Send us your photos and tag us on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram. Don't forget to use #30lunch.

6. Changing lives since 1989

Give yourself a pat on the back for supporting families living with cardiomyopathy. Thank you!
