Turn your celebrations into a fundraiser and help make a difference to St Ann’s. Whether it’s your birthday, wedding, retirement or any other occasion, you can make your day even more special by encouraging your loved ones to make a donation to St Ann’s.
Celebration Giving raises vital funds for our hospice every month, generating income that enables our teams to continue to deliver outstanding care and support to our patients, their families, friends and carers.
Without generous donations from our supporters, we couldn’t continue to provide care to the Greater Manchester community, and we would like to thank everyone who turns their special day into one of giving to St Ann’s.
It’s really simple to do, you can set up a Facebook Fundraiser (see below) or a JustGiving page and ask your guests to donate.
Or you can pay in any money raised at your celebration over the phone, online or by post – whatever you prefer. Find out how you can pay money in here.
Did you know that you can fundraise through your Facebook profile? It’s a fantastic way to encourage your friends, family and colleagues to give to St Ann’s and it can be done with a click of a button.
Facebook donates 100% of the profits to your chosen charity, ensuring St Ann’s receives all the funds from your supporters.
The fundraisers can be tailored to your specific celebration. Facebook will also send you a notification around your birthday to encourage you to set up a fundraiser that marks your special day.
We’ll provide the information about St Ann’s but you do have the option to customise your dedication, so you can let your friends know why St Ann’s is so special to you!
Supporters John and Carolyn, turned John’s 70th birthday into a celebration for St Ann’s.
When John reached 70, he and wife Carolyn threw a party and asked friends and family to make a charitable donation instead of buying presents, a gesture which raised £800.
John said “When you reach your 70s, you don’t really have anything to ask for and we thought the party was a good way for people to contribute”
