Celebration balloons

Donate in celebration

Are you planning a big celebration, such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary? Giving in celebration is a wonderful way to raise money for families facing dementia.

Wedding favours, balloons and collection boxes

Visit our shop to order wedding favours, pin badges, balloons, collection boxes and donation envelopes.

There are two wedding favour card designs to choose from and we are able to print them with your first names. The text on the card reads:

“In place of favours, (names) have made a donation to Dementia UK to help families face dementia.”

We suggest a donation of £1 per card to cover the costs of printing and posting the cards to you.

There are Dementia UK pin badges, a special memento for your donation. We suggest a donation of £2 per card.

When ordering items, please allow a minimum of two weeks when requesting these items to ensure they arrive in time.

“Thank you so much for our cards and pins. The day was beautiful and it was even better seeing guests wearing their pins in the evening.”
