What is donate your day?

Congratulations! Whatever you’re celebrating, be it birthday, anniversary, retirement or bah mitzvah, donating your day to Prostate Cancer UK is fantastic way to mark the occasion.

You’ll be making a huge difference to the thousands of men affected by prostate cancer, which is nothing short of heroic and for that Men United salutes you.

If you’re holding your day in honour of someone in particular, you could even set up a Celebration Fund, where you can share pictures and your guests can donate and leave comments. If you’re interested in setting up a Celebration Fund for your event, contact us.

How do I donate my Birthday?

There are lots of ways you can donate your Birthday. some great ideas we've seen from our supporters are:

  • Putting collection tins around the room (the bar is often a good place!)
  • Providing pin badges for guests to buy for a donation
  • Let your guests act as DJ and take over the music for a donation.

Or another way to raise money is to set up a JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving page. 

You can then send the link to your page to your friends and family and ask them to make a donation rather than buying you gifts.  Or you could even use our Pint image below on your social media accounts and ask your mates to donate rather than buying you a drink on your birthday.

For more fundraising ideas and tips on how to make your day extra special, let us know about your day and we'll send you our Donate Your Day Fundraising pack.
