Cancer Research UK – Card & Gift Range

Last updated: April 26th, 2023 Published on: April 6, 2021

We’re delighted to announce a brand-new range of charity cards and gifts with Cancer Research UK. Having already raised over £250,000 in the last four years for the charity through our ‘pennies in the basket’ scheme, we are extending our partnership further to raise more money with the addition of this newly launched range.

The range will see 30% of sales from cards and 20% of sales from gifts being donated to help fund this life-saving research. There will be a total of 24 card designs and 20 gifting items to buy, in support of Cancer Research UK.

This new selection of cards has been designed to help keep friends, families and loved ones connected. As is usual with Funky Pigeon, we will be offering personalised and non-personalised cards to choose from.

The card designs vary with some related to occasions such as birthdays to sympathy cards, as well as mindfulness and ‘thinking of you’ cards for anyone who is and has been affected by cancer. Our new gifting range works alongside the card offering to inspire mindfulness and positivity; we hope that the gifts can help to make someone’s day a little brighter.

We have been proudly partnered with Cancer Research UK for four years, and in that time our fantastic customers have helped to raise over £250,000. This money has gone towards crucial research into the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer as well as helping to spread awareness.

This amazing amount was donated by our ‘pennies in the basket’ scheme where customers can donate a few pence at the checkout every time they shop online at Funky Pigeon. Those basket roundups really add up, so we wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all the generous people who have contributed so far.

The partnership is something we at Funky Pigeon hope can further support the charity for many years to come. Our Managing Director, Richard Pepper, has said: “The whole Funky Pigeon team are delighted to partner with Cancer Research UK and support the Stand Up To Cancer campaign, as it’s a charity dedicated to a cause close to the hearts of many of our colleagues. We know our customers will love the new range of cards and gifts, and we hope that the contribution we make through the donations from the sale of the products, along with our continued fundraising through our ‘pennies in the basket’ scheme, will make a real difference supporting the brilliant work from Cancer Research UK to save lives through their research and awareness-raising.”

Our goal over the next three years of our partnership with Cancer Research UK is to raise over £1 million pounds for the charity. We’re hopeful that sales from our wonderful new range and the continuance of the ‘pennies in the basket’ scheme will help us to reach that target!
