“Following our personal experience we felt compelled to help Target Ovarian Cancer in whatever way we could, what better way for our guests to support us than by supporting them."

Whether you are celebrating a

  • Birthday
  • Wedding
  • Christening
  • New home
  • Retirement
  • Anniversary
  • New baby 

or any other special occasion, your friends and family can make a difference to women living with ovarian cancer and learn about why the work we do is important to you.


How to do it


Ask for donations in lieu of presents

  • You can set up an online page with JustGiving to collect your donations. Choose the option ‘personal occasion’ when creating the page. This allows not only guests who are attending your event to make a donation but also family and friends who are unable to attend.
  • If you would prefer to collect cash or cheques, you can request donation envelopes to ensure that Gift Aid can be claimed where possible. This makes donations worth an extra 25 per cent at no extra  cost to you or the person making the donation.
  • We can provide leaflets to tell your friends and family about the work they are supporting. Fill in our materials order form to order yours


  • You can make a donation and request our party/wedding favour pin badges. For pin badges on their own we ask for a suggested donation of £1 each. We can also provide you with organza bags in a colour of your choice to match your colour scheme for an additional suggested donation of 50p each. If you wish to simply make a donation on behalf of your guests we can send you place cards to let them know.
