Little golden bees and a rainbow: wedding favours by Macmillan

Published by Claire Gould on

Your wedding is a huge opportunity to raise a ton of money for charity. Please – if you’re already living together and don’t need a pile of gifts from your loved ones, consider asking for donations instead. Charities will suffer while we make our way through the cost of living crisis – and it’s a good time to remember there are people who are desperately in need of financial help, more than you ‘need’ an expensive honeymoon.

The lovely folks at Macmillan asked us to share their wedding favours, and we think they’re adorable and a very, very worthy cause.

From wildflower seeds and petal confetti to rainbow pin badges, Macmillan Cancer Support’s new wedding favour collection includes something to suit every taste. The beautifully crafted gifts are a great way to thank guests, honour absent friends and raise money for the growing number of people living with cancer in the UK.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on cancer care, and as many people with cancer continue to miss out on the support that’s right for them, there has never been a more important time to add a little touch to your big day and help raise vital funds for Macmillan.

100% of the profits of every wedding favour purchase from Macmillan’s shop will help the charity to continue doing whatever it takes to support the millions of people living with cancer across the UK. Macmillan relies almost on entirely on public donations to make a difference, and every item sold will help to raise vital funds so the charity can continue to provide the physical, financial and emotional support so many people rely on.

At Macmillan, we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are our worries. We will move mountains to help you live life as fully as you can. And we don’t stop there.

We’re going all out to find ever better ways to help people with cancer, helping to bring forward the day when everyone gets life-transforming support from day one.
