Cancer Relief launches wedding favour fundraising initiative

Cancer Relief Gibraltar has launched a new wedding favour fundraising initiative where the happy couple can by pins as favours.

The first couple to try out the new pins were Janieve and Ben Hawkins who were keen to involve Cancer Relief in their nuptials.

“We are frequently asked about how people can fundraise or donate, and we are always trying to come up with new and unique ways to offer the people of Gibraltar,” the charity said.

“With the increasing popularity of including charitable donations in special events and the fantastic giving spirit in our community, we are excited to present our new, exclusively designed wedding favours.”

The pin badges have been specifically designed as wedding favours by remote volunteer Elisa Mackenzie (, who is based in Scotland.

The pins are are individually available for mix and match, come supplied with a table place-card with space to write names and a thank you from Cancer Relief for your donation.

The proceeds of these pins are used towards continuing to provide all the services the charity currently offers.

“While we have had wedding parties use our general charity Cancer Relief pins as favours in the past, increasing interest encouraged us to look at making the idea a bit more special, as a wedding celebration deserves,” the charity said.

“When this project was in its infancy, the charity was approached by Janieve and Ben Hawkins who were keen to include Cancer Relief in their wedding.”

“We decided to ask them to help us in piloting this new project and they happily agreed. As the beautiful photos show, the day was as special as they hoped it would be and our pin badges were received very positively on the wedding tables.”

“The charity would like to extend a special thanks to Janieve and Ben for trusting us to take part in their wedding.”

The pins are available at the Centre, if you are interested in ordering these pins for your wedding, or would like to inquire about the options, just the give the Cancer Relief Fundraising Team a call at the Centre on 20042392 or email
