Donate in celebration

Donate in celebration of your birthday, anniversary or wedding

If you’re planning a special celebration, why not ask your friends and family to donate to Yorkshire Cancer Research instead of giving presents?
Setting up and collecting sponsorship is very straight forward. See below for details on the different ways you can collect and pay in sponsorship money.
Thank you for choosing to support Yorkshire Cancer Research. Your money will help fund vital cancer research across the region. If you have any questions email or call our events team directly on 01423 877 210.


Collect at a party

If you would like to collect and donate in celebration at a party or wedding, we can help by sending collection tins and information about Yorkshire Cancer Research to you. We can also supply you with Gift Aid envelopes, which can help boost your fundraising total by allowing us to claim back 25p for every pound you collect.


Ask friends and family to donate directly to us

Your friends and family can send their donations directly to:


Yorkshire Cancer Research
Jacob Smith House
7 Grove Park Court


Let us know that you will be asking your friends and family to donate to us and we will acknowledge all donations sent in your name. Again, we can provide you with Gift Aid envelopes to distribute.
Contact us on – 01423 877210 or


Not just events

You don’t have to hold an event to give in celebration. You can make a donation or request donations to mark any special occasion. Instead of sending Christmas cards, rather than receiving Easter eggs, an alternative birthday gift – the list is endless!

‘Favour’ Yorkshire Cancer Research at your wedding

If you’re getting married, why not mark this special occasion by asking friends and family to give a donation to Yorkshire Cancer Research rather than wedding gifts? Or perhaps make a donation instead of wedding favours?
Either way you will be helping save Yorkshire Lives.
Yorkshire Cancer Research Give in celebration for Weddings provides personalised table cards with a message about why you’ve chosen to accept a donation instead of traditional presents or favours.


Set up a fundraising webpage

You can click the create a page button below to create a personal webpage to mark your occasion. By creating an online page your friends and family will be able to securely donate online and leave a message for you to read. You can upload pictures and write a message explaining why you want family and friends to give in celebration.
If your friend or family member has asked you to give to us in celebration, you can find their page by clicking the link below and searching for their name.
