You could collect donations on the day and either make a donation to us via our website where you can choose 'Giving in Celebration', post a cheque to us or get in touch for our bank account details and transfer your gift to us directly.

Like and share icon

Use social media

You could set up a Facebook fundraiser to raise money for Action. It’s so quick and easy to do and is a great way to spread the word to your family and friends.

Get your playlist sorted in style

Celebrate your special day with some top tunes and raise money at the same time. Ask your friends and family to donate a song to help you celebrate, and get yourself a really special playlist.

  • Set up an account on GivePenny
  • Choose Action Medical Research as your charity
  • Connect your Spotify account to GivePenny
  • Share your playlist with friends and family, and ask them to donate a song of their choice
  • Enjoy the tunes!

Celebrate someone special

Maybe you've been through your own journey and would like to do something to celebrate. Perhaps your child has thrived after overcoming an illness or being born too soon.

Setting up a permanent, ongoing fund to raise money in celebration can be a way to give something back while marking the journey you’ve been on.

You could raise money towards your fund by organising a small event with family and friends, by donating on special days or anniversaries, or maybe by doing a challenge event and asking people to sponsor you. We have a huge range of events you can undertake to help raise funds while challenging yourself and going on the adventure of a life-time!

Donating as a gift

If you're stuck on a birthday gift, or a present idea for Mother's or Father's day, why not make a donation towards our work in your loved one's name instead? Your gift will help fund medical research which could lead to breakthroughs, vaccinations and cures for some of the toughest fights our children face.

You can make a donation as a gift by going to our donation page and selecting 'Giving in Celebration', when asked (after you have entered your donation amount), or by posting a cheque.

Adding special touches

Once you've set the date and made all the arrangements, please let us know about your celebration. We can provide the little extras you might want - how about some Action balloons, posters, leaflets or collection tins?
