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.

Set up your JustGiving page today.

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.

Facebook Fundraisers

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!

Set up your fundraiser for your birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement or celebration today.

Supporter Teresa, turned her retirement into a celebration for St Ann’s, marking the end of her working life by challenging herself to raise £2,021 for our hospice.

Throughout 2021, Teresa is taking on an extraordinary challenge of running and walking 2021km in a bid to raise vital funds for St Ann’s.

She said: “Rather than buy gifts, I asked colleagues to make donations which a lot did and a joint collection also raised £310.”
