Ways you can support Centrepoint through your celebration

  • Tell us your plans! We’d love to hear what you have in mind by filling in our form at the bottom of this page.
  • Set up a JustGiving page and ask friends, family and colleagues to make a donation to Centrepoint instead of giving a gift.
  • Plan a party to celebrate your big day and consider how you can ask for donations at the event – could you host some games or competitions in exchange for suggested donations to take part?
  • Set up a birthday fundraiser on Facebook to easily ask for donations – you might get some unexpected donations!
  • Add donations to Centrepoint as one of the options on your Wedding/Civil Partnership gift list.
  • Order our free Centrepoint place cards to decorate your table and let all your guests know they are there for a good cause.
  • Add some decoration to your party by downloading our Centrepoint bunting.
  • Ask us to send you some festive orange and white Centrepoint balloons.
  • Give our Centrepoint celebration pin badges as Wedding/Civil Partnership favours or ask for a donation at a party.
  • Hold a collection at your event using our free Centrepoint collection tins or Gift Aid envelopes.
