Cancer is such a widespread illness that we all probably know someone who is or has been affected by it. With that in mind, Cancer Research UK has a fantastic opportunity for couples to spread the awareness and importance of cancer research on their big day by making a donation to further research into cancer in lieu of traditional wedding favours.
Choosing a wedding favour that is meaningful can be a bit of a challenge, but with Cancer Research UK, brides and grooms can donate to a good cause on behalf of their guests.
Alex Monroe, a British designer who creates beautiful handmade jewellery, has created limited edition pin badges exclusive to Cancer Research UK. Styled in the shape of a hen and cockerel, these pins are lovely and affordable wedding favours that can be ordered with personalised cards. They’ll go with any wedding but will look particularly at home as part of a rustic or shabby chic theme! Attach them to your place cards, or combine them with your seating guide, and then after the wedding they become more than wedding decorations—these pins are completely wearable, and will serve as a pretty reminder of the big day and of the donation made to aid the ongoing work of cancer research. What’s more, these pins would also make a quirky gift for the bride and her hens for the hen party!
Cancer Research UK asks for a suggested donation of £2.50 per badge. Proceeds go toward cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. So if you buy these pins you can do so in the knowledge that you’re contributing to a great cause!
