Celebrate and donate

Celebrating your special occasion by raising money for UHD Charity can be a great way to raise money for a great cause to a ward, department or hospital that means the most to you – all whilst having fun!

Whether it’s through your Birthday, Wedding, Anniversary or another special celebration, asking for donations instead of gifts is an inspirational way to mark your special day, and will help fund the amazing work of UHD Charity!

The easiest way to fundraise in celebration is to start a Just Giving page or set up a Facebook Fundraiser and share the links with family, friends, and colleagues – you could even set up both! If you want to collect money on the day of your special occasion or even ask for a contribution with your invitations we can also provide donation envelopes for you to give to your guests on the day if you prefer – just let us know and we will be happy to provide these for your special occasion.

The wording you choose will depend on the tone of your event and invitations, but the most popular way to convey the idea is to talk about donations instead of presents and to make the point that collectively you can achieve amazing things. Money raised in celebration is a great way to support the staff and patients in your local hospitals. All donations make a big difference, for example just £20 could fund an outreach therapy session for a patient undergoing cancer treatment. 

University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity exists to help enhance the care and treatment of our patients at the Royal Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch Hospitals.

The funds we raise through donations, gifts, legacies and our events help us to provide the Hospitals with additional facilities and state-of-the-art new equipment as well as resources for our staff, over and above what the NHS can fund.

If you have any questions, we’re on hand to help make your celebration a success, please contact us.
