Wedding Favours

Congratulations on your up coming special day.

Your wedding celebration could help make a difference to over 200 children diagnosed with cancer each year in Ireland if you choose to make a donation to Childhood Cancer Foundation in lieu of traditional wedding favours for your guests.

We are a registered charity set up and led by parents of children with cancer. 

In Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, we fund a full-time Play Specialist on the children’s cancer day unit and the Internationally recognised Beads of Courage programme which helps children to understand and cope with their cancer diagnosis.

We are also working to raise awareness of childhood cancer and to make the gold ribbon the recognised symbol of childhood cancer. Our Light It Up Gold Campaign each September  sees buildings all over Ireland North and South light up gold for childhood cancer awareness.

When you make a donation to the charity, in lieu of wedding favours, we provide you with wedding favour cards with the option of a gold ribbon pin attached for your guest tables. This lets your guests know that you are using your happy occasion to shine a light on children with cancer and their families all around Ireland.

Please email info@childhoodcancer.ie to find out more.

You can donate online by clicking here or send a cheque or bank draft to Childhood Cancer Foundation, Main Street, Dunboyne, Co Meath (01-5545655).
