Know that as you celebrate a special occasion you are helping others.

Whether you are celebrating a wedding, civil partnership, anniversary, birthday, retirement or another special occasion, you can support Demelza. Dedicate your day to helping babies, children and young people who may not live a long life, to live a full life.

Why not ask friends and family to support Demelza instead of giving presents? Do you really need another kettle or cheeseboard? You could turn your celebration into a fundraiser. They, you, and our children will benefit much more from helping Demelza. It’s easy to set up a dedicated fundraising page via Facebook, or we can provide posters and donation envelopes for you to use.

We also offer beautiful silver heart pin badges that make great wedding favours or celebration keepsakes. Offer them to your guests as a way of marking the occasion and give them something to treasure for the future.

Gifts in celebration silver heart pin badges

The pin badges can be purchased at £1 each, or in packs of 10 with name place cards for £12 per pack. To find out more download our order form or contact Lisa Clark on 01795 845275 or email

Donate in memory

Donating in memory is a beautiful way to celebrate the life of someone you love. You will be honouring their life at the same time as helping the life of children and families.

Leave a gift in your Will

Leaving a gift in your Will is one of the most valuable and lasting ways that you can support Demelza. Not only will you know where your support is going, but you’ll know you would have helped us help others.
