Congratulations on your up coming special day.
Your wedding celebration could make a difference to over 200 children diagnosed with cancer in Ireland each year if you choose to make a donation to Childhood Cancer Foundation (CCF) in lieu of wedding favours for your guests.
CCF is a registered charity set up and run by parents of children with cancer. We are 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.
Working with Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin we are funding play services on the children’s cancer day unit. We are funding a medical research project at the hospital and in 2016 we rolled out the Internationally recognised Beads of Courage programme which helps children to understand and cope with their cancer diagnosis.
When you make a donation to CCF, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our wedding favours.
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).
