The Pink Parties raise money for the breast unit at the hospital.
Welcome to R Pink Party...
October is breast cancer awareness month, and as part of this we hope to encourage you to host a Pink Party at home, in work, at school, or somewhere in your community. Your donations will go towards the breast unit at the hospital.
Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK, with one in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime. There’s a good chance of recovery if it’s detected in its early stages, and every year the Linda McCartney Centre assesses over 7,200 women and over 4,200 are discharged after their first outpatient. So whether you can raise £30 or £300, every penny will be used to make a real difference to the cancer patients we treat.
"Every penny raised will go towards equipment and facilities that directly benefit our breast cancer patients, making a positive difference to the lives of thousands of individuals across the North West every year."
More about R Pink Parties
You don’t have to organise a big soiree – it can be as simple as inviting a few friends over for cocktails and a catch up, you may want to host a coffee morning or perhaps put on a raffle or tombola at work. You could host a bake sale or organise a lunchtime quiz - the smallest ideas can be the most effective!
Whilst ouR Pink Parties are all about getting together, having fun and making memories, it’s important to remember just why we are raising these funds. You may have had breast cancer, lost a loved one to breast cancer, supported someone through their breast cancer journey, or just want to be a part of helping someone else get through theirs.
We want to make a difference and together we can help beat breast cancer.

Pink Party: FAQs
Can I approach companies to donate products for an event?
Yes! The more people involved and the more on offer the better your event will be. We can provide you with an authorisation letter as proof that you are fundraising for R Charity, to provide to any companies if you are asked for one.
I want to collect in a public place, is this allowed?
You can contact your local shops, supermarket and pubs directly to see if they will allow you to fundraise in their venue. To collect on the street you must obtain a street collection licence from the local council - contact us if you need help.
What are the regulations for holding a raffle?
The raffle must not include any cash prizes. Please let us know if you are selling raffle tickets prior to an event.
Can I use the R Charity logo?
We’re happy for you to use our logo online and on any promotional materials for your event, but there are some guidelines on how it should be used. Contact us on 0151 706 3172 to request a copy of the logo.
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid increases the value of your donations and means we’ll benefit even more at no extra cost to you. If you or your sponsor is a UK taxpayer, tick the box to add Gift Aid when you make a donation and we can reclaim the basic rate of tax on your gift - 25p for every £1 you give!
Got a question we haven’t covered here?
Call us on 0151 706 3172 or email email@example.com and we’ll be happy to help you out.
