Fundraise in celebration

Raising money for the Family Holiday Association is not only a worthwhile thing to do – it can also be great fun. And you don’t need to run a marathon or bake a thousand cakes to make a difference (although you’re welcome to do both!). You can help bring a little sunshine to struggling families simply by including a fundraising element in your wedding, birthday party or any other celebration event.

Fundraising in celebration is a super way to make the most of having lots of people in one place at one time, and even a small donation here and there can really add up. We’ve come up with a few suggestions below.


Mention the Family Holiday Association on your wedding invites. Those who wish to can make a donation to the charity instead of buying a wedding gift, or perhaps do both.

Birthday party

Ask your guests if they would like to choose songs to play at your birthday party, and charge them an amount to do so. You could also auction off your birthday cake at the end of the party!


Why not tie in your fundraising with the number of years you have been married? For instance, if you’re having a 25th anniversary celebration, ask your guests for donations of £25, or perhaps hold a silver auction with the money raised going to the Family Holiday Association.

However you choose to fundraise in celebration, we can help by sending you a fundraising pack.

If collecting money on the day isn’t appropriate, or if you would like to promote your fundraising in advance, it’s easy to set up a secure, interactive fundraising page online. We usually recommend Virgin Money Giving or Just Giving. Just search for Family Holiday Association and follow the instructions to create your fundraise in celebration page.
