Having a celebration? You can choose to support us as part of your birthday, wedding, anniversary – or whatever it may be – and do something extraordinary for patients in the hospitals we support.
Let us know what you’re planning and we can give you all the support you need!
Celebrate your big day and make an incredible difference to patients in East London at the same time.
Having a knees-up while knowing you’re helping to fund extraordinary healthcare too? That’s a winning combination.
How to give in celebration
We’re grateful to all those who choose to support us as part of a celebratory event – it’s a very meaningful (and fun!) way to make a difference to the hospitals we support.
If you’d like some tips or support on the event itself, please visit our dedicated page to organising your own event.
JustGiving is the easiest way for people to donate to your event. Get started with setting up a JustGiving page of your own – please let us know if you’d like any help.
If you’ve already had the event and would like to know how to get donations to us, please see our donate page, which lists the different ways you can choose to give.
Jack's 90th Birthday
In October 2014, Jack was admitted to St Bartholomew’s for “routine” heart care – an aortic valve replacement. He was 88 at the time.
The day before he was due to leave the hospital, his condition deteriorated and the cardiac team needed to perform emergency surgery – during which time his life expired for 10 minutes.
Now, 18 months on and fully recovered, his family arranged for a special 90th birthday surprise – a vintage 1950 black cab to drive Jack, who is an ex-London taxi driver, into the square at Barts to meet the cardiac team and present a cheque for £1,000.
Andy and Thérèse’s charitable wedding favours
Andy and his wife, Thérèse, very kindly chose to donate to us instead of having favours at their wedding.
“We decided that due to everything the hospital did for me and my brother that we want to thank them.
"I’ve raised various amounts for Barts Charity but we wanted to do something for them together.
"We knew straight away we should donate money instead of giving our guests wedding favours! We’ll continue to raise money for such a great charity.”
Making the difference
Your gift as part of your celebration will help us do more for patients in the hospitals we support.
You can choose to fundraise for a specific ward or service within the hospitals, or generally – where we ensure the money goes to where it’s most needed.
