Support us at your special occasions

Multi-coloured balloons

Whether you are celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, or your wedding day – raising money as part of your special occasion will help us to continue to invest in breakthrough treatments and the best information to support everyone affected by arthritis.

There are a number of ways you can support us:

  • Ask guests to make a donation instead of buying a present. You can make it easy for friends and family to donate by setting up a Justgiving page.
  • Give our pin badges as wedding favours or gifts to your guests.
  • Display our collection boxes or donation envelopes on tables to allow guests to make a donation.

We'd be delighted to be part of your special occasion and have a selection of materials we can provide…

  • pin badges – we ask for a minimum £1 donation per badge
  • cardboard collection boxes – why not put a few collection boxes out on tables to collect donations?
  • wise words for your wedding – a fun way of capturing your guests’ best advice on a happy marriage.
  • my special message cards – allow your guests to leave their memories and celebration messages for you to treasure.
  • thank you inserts – include our charity thank you slips when thanking your friends and family for their support.
  • donation gift aid envelopes – display our envelopes on tables to allow guests to make a donation. If they're a UK tax payer, they can also gift aid their donations
  • white and orange balloons to decorate your venue.
