What is a Sands In Celebration of Fund?
If you are planning a special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary or birthday, you can request that friends and family or guests celebrate the occasion by making a donation to Sands instead of giving presents.
People have created pages in lieu of Christmas cards and presents, to mark a christening or New Year's Resolution.
Whatever the occasion, you can ask friends and relatives to mark it by donating to Sands.
How to set up a Sands In Celebration of Fund
To set up your online gift list, go to www.justgiving.com/sands and select 'create your page' and 'personal occasion', and then follow the simple step by step instructions to create your own secure page.
You can add a picture and a personal message if you wish.
You can then let all your family and friends know the address of your very special In Celebration of page, who can then contribute to your fund online with a credit/debit card.
Alternatively, you can ask friends and family to donate by cash, cheque or charity voucher (made payable to 'Sands'). You can either collect up all the donations yourself and send them to us in batches, or ask people to send them directly to us.
Please contact us for a special code to use, so that we can track all contributions to your fund.
