Give up gifts

Donation page screenshot © Info

Giving to charity through a wedding or civil partnership is an increasingly popular way for couples to make their special day even more meaningful, with guests being given the opportunity to donate to a chosen charity in place of a traditional gift list.

Alternatively, you may want friends and family to donate in place of birthday or anniversary gifts.

By supporting the British Red Cross on your special day you can help us save lives and give practical assistance to people in crisis around the world.

If you have specific requirements please do feel free to contact us to discuss your wishes. For instance, you might like your donations to support a particular area of our work, or perhaps you would like some ideas about how to present a gift list or put together donation materials to distribute among your friends.

We could also create a personalised donation page on our website to celebrate your special occasion. You can then give your bespoke web address to friends and family so that they can donate to us online quickly and simply.

To make a donation in lieu of presents, discuss this type of giving, or request a bespoke donation webpage, please call our supporter care line on 0844 87 100 87 or email
