What are charity wedding favours?

Wedding fundraising

Donations through JustGiving

Supporting Dementia UK by holding a collection on your big day is a special way to recognise a loved one and help us offer a lifeline to more families facing dementia.

The easiest way for your guests to donate is by setting up an online JustGiving fundraising page. This is also a great way for people who are unable to attend your wedding to show they’re thinking of you on your special day.

Once your page is set up you can include the QR code in your wedding invitations or share the link to the page. Follow these top tips for creating your JustGiving page. 

Collection boxes and envelopes

Some people choose to place donation envelopes at each table setting for guests who would prefer to give on the day. We also have collection boxes available in our online shop.

Other ideas to support us at your wedding

Why not host a post-speech quiz or set up a donate-as-you-go photobooth? Your wedding is the perfect time to make amazing memories and raise vital funds.

If you’re thinking of supporting us with your wedding day, we’d love to hear from you. You can contact the team by emailing us at

How your donations support us

£15 could cover the telephone costs of five families affected by dementia calling our free national Dementia Helpline.

£60 could pay for a specialist dementia nurse to advise two families in our virtual clinics so that they can better support the person they care for.

£225 could fund a new specialist dementia nurse to run a full day of face-to-face appointments for families affected by young onset dementia (where symptoms develop under the age of 65).
