Celebrate a special occasion

Beverley and Mike cutting cake

A special occasion is a wonderful opportunity to bring friends and family together and raise funds for a cause close to your heart. 

By asking for donations instead of gifts, your birthday, anniversary or wedding could provide expert support and information to individuals and their loved ones affected by cardiomyopathy.

Congratulations to Beverley and Mike, who raised £420 on their special day, in memory of Beverley's daughter, Jo. 


Facebook birthday fundraisers

If you want to celebrate your birthday with us this year then you too can help to raise funds for people affected by cardiomyopathy. Setting up a birthday fundraising page on Facebook or Just Giving is an inspiring way to celebrate your special day whilst supporting families affected by cardiomyopathy. The funds you raise will be paid automatically to the charity so that your donations can begin making a difference as soon as possible. Facebook pays all the processing fees so 100% of each donation goes directly to Cardiomyopathy UK.

Set up your fundraiser

Instagram fundraisers

If you want to fundraise for us using Instagram, you can also set up a fundraiser straight from an Instagram post. Here is how:

  1. Open Instagram and tap 'new post'
  2. Choose the image for your post
  3. Once you are happy with the image, tap 'add fundraiser'
  4. When you are prompted to choose the charity you want to fundraise for, select Cardiomyopathy UK
  5. Enter the details of your fundraiser and click done

Weddings and civil partnerships

If you’re thinking of supporting Cardiomyopathy UK as part of your big day, setting up an online fundraising page is the easiest way to collect donations. Include the link to your page in your invitations, your wedding website or with wedding favours and place settings. We can also provide you with balloons, donation boxes and donation envelopes to add a special Cardiomyopathy UK touch to your day. Contact fundraising@cardiomyopathy.org to request materials.

Set up your wedding fundraising page

Having a party?

If you're getting everybody together for a special party, we can send you our balloons, donation boxes or donation envelopes for your tables. If you’re making invitation or donation cards, we can also send you a high-resolution copy of our logo to include. Contact fundraising@cardiomyopathy.org to request materials.

You might also want to set up an online fundraising page. You can share this with guests on your invitations, via social media or on notecards on tables. It’s also helpful for guests as they won’t need cash. To boost your fundraising, you could also hold a raffle at your party, ask for donations for song requests or have some ‘pay to play’ games.

Set up your fundraising page 

After your event

If you’ve raised funds online, you can sit back and relax as the funds will be transferred directly to the charity. If you’ve raised some money offline, you can pay in your funds online, over the phone or by sending us a cheque.
