Giving in celebration

If you’re celebrating a wedding, birthday or anniversary, why not make it extra special by dedicating it to Myeloma UK?

Weddings and civil partnerships

If you’re getting married or forming a civil partnership, there are a number of ways you can help to transform the lives of people living with myeloma and their families.

  1. Order some of our wedding favour cards and give them to guests on your big day.
  2. Request some of our donation envelopes and collection boxes for your tables and wedding venue.
  3. Set up a fundraising page on JustGiving and ask family and friends to give a donation instead of a wedding gift.

If you have any questions about turning your special occasion into a fundraiser, please don’t hesitate to contact our Fundraising team on fundraising@myeloma.org.uk or 0131 230 0429.

Celebrating a birthday or anniversary?

If you’re about to celebrate your birthday or anniversary, you can turn your special day into something truly wonderful for the families we support.

  1. Set up a fundraising page on JustGiving and ask family and friends to give a donation instead of a birthday or anniversary gift.
  2. Request some of our donation envelopes and collection boxes and encourage guests to use them at your birthday or anniversary party.
  3. Set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook. It’s super easy and a great way to reach a lot of people.
  4. Organise some fundraising events in the lead up to your birthday or anniversary and on the big day itself. Check out our Fundraise with us page for some inspiration.
