Give in Celebration

You don’t have to create a whole new fundraising event to help raise vital funds for our home away from home. If you’re getting ready to celebrate a birthday, christening or wedding why not encourage friends, family and colleagues to help support a cause that’s close to your heart. You can do this by asking for donations in lieu of presents or setting up an online fundraising page. If you are celebrating a wedding, why not offer RMHB heart pin badges as your wedding favors? To find out more please get in touch.
