Whether you're celebrating a wedding, birthday, retirement or anniversary, you can dedicate your special occasion to us and support the incredible work across our hospitals and community services in Bury, Oldham, Rochdale and Salford.

Simply set up an online fundraising page, or fundraise on social media, and ask for donations instead of gifts. Your money will make a difference to thousands of lives by helping us fund innovative equipment, education, research and wellbeing support.

Whatever you plan, don't forget to let us know via our fundraising form, so we can support you.

Join us in supporting your NHS.

Instead of receiving gifts, why not ask your friends and family to make a donation? You can set up an online birthday fundraising page, like Sandra.

Sandra“For my birthday, I set up a fundraising page to raise funds for Salford Royal. I asked friends to donate to my page instead of buying me gifts and I was so happy to raise a total of £290!”

Sandra Wright, from Stockport

Make a donation in lieu of wedding favours, place a collection tin, or simply set up an online page so guests can donate instead of buying gifts. There’s lots of ways to raise funds on your big day and the team can support you with this.

From anniversaries to retirements, make your day truly special by setting up an online fundraising page so your loved ones can easily donate. For fundraising ideas, visit our Organise your own fundraiser page.
