The Wedding March
Event dates: Saturday 11th September – Thursday 11th August 2022
Have you ever dreamt of wearing your wedding dress again? Well here is your chance to do just that and do it for a good cause!
We would love you to raise money by walking 5, 10 or 15 miles in wedding attire, to help us continue gifting urgent weddings to people with a terminal illness or life-limiting illness. This wedding fundraiser is not just for brides and grooms, but groomsmen, bridesmaids and mothers of the brides can get in on the act too!
Planning the perfect wedding for a terminally ill person at short notice is an expensive and challenging task to do. After nearly 10 years of offering our special service, we would love to have our own wedding boutique, where our couples can come to choose their wedding day attire and we can sell the surplus stock of wedding dresses donated to us each year to raise money for important items like food and rings that are often not donated.
So come and join us for the big walk in Manchester on Saturday 11th September 2021 or organise your own wedding March where you live with work colleagues, family or friends, we promise you it will be fun.
The Wedding March, fulfilling wedding dreams one step at a time.
