Happy Birthday!

Whether it is your or your child’s birthday, we are absolutely thrilled that you have chosen to share your special day with Spoons and we very much look forward to celebrating with you. Thank you!

A popular and easy way to help support us, is to set up a fundraiser for friends and family to donate to.

How do I set up a fundraising page?

There are two main platforms you can use to create your fundraiser:-

JustGiving or Facebook 

Both are really simple to set up and your donations come automatically to Spoons, so you can concentrate on celebrating your day!

How can I maximise my funding?

Here are some easy ways to maximise each donation:-

  • We would encourage you to set a target on your fundraising page as it really does make a difference
  • Add your story and why you are supporting Spoons and then share widely amongst your friends, family and colleagues
  • Please do ask your friends and family to tick the Gift Aid box, if appropriate, by mentioning the benefits to them. If they are a UK Tax payer, this will increase their donation by 25% at no extra cost to them.
  • Spread the word – Tell people about it by chatting, emailing or sharing on your social media channels

Use our fundraising materials

Make use of our fundraising materials such as collection boxes, balloons, T-shirts and pin badges

Are there other ways to pay in my fundraising?
