I've decided to do charity wedding favours but because i cant decide on one charity ive decided to do a different charity for each table so i need charity suggestions ive currently got 8 so need 3 more any suggestions?
That’s a fantastic idea. Who do you currently have?
What a wonderful idea! Who do you have so far? Try and stick to smaller independent ones where you know the money won’t be used to pay someone’s 50k Christmas bonus
Local neonatal ward? X
Little princess trust?
TASC The Ambulance Staff Charity :)
Doggy911 is a charity that saves dogs from the Chinese meat trade and rehomes the in the UK ! That's where I got my dog -they do amazing work and help disabled dogs get medical treatment they desperately need
Do you have a homeless charity near you? I volunteer for one and with winter coming they are going to need all the help they can get. I'm sure the homeless in your area would be most grateful x
We made a donation to the fetal medicine unit at the hospital where our daughter was born as without them she may not be here. Our way of saying thanks to them. I would say think of charities who get overlooked. X

All charities are excellent. I have done work for DeBra is the past, for people with butterfly skin. Perhaps mind or calm, or local hospices in your area?

Newlife charity for disabled children
Lifeline 4 kids
The Variety charity.

Sands UK. A fantastic charity , who do an amazing job. I have personal reasons for thinking that they are amazing. Terribly underfunded & deserve as much help as possible
Such a fantastic idea xxx
Alzheimer’s society, dementia UK, NSPCC, local hospital/neonatal unit?
Kidney research UK. I know a 12 year old girl who has stage 5 kidney failure. She has had to be taken out of school majority of days as she is in that much pain. Her brothers have been tested and none are a match, her parents are too ill to be tested themselves. Only one person can be tested at a time and she is getting worse each month. Kidney failure affects you in loads of different ways for example fatigue, pains in torso and legs and the most visible one is growth. She is 13 in October and she honestly looks 7 years old.
We donated to a homeless charity and my friend donated to cancer research and dogs trust. You could also donate to Alzheimer's and dementia, or a children's charity

Bliss baby charity x
