A special way to celebrate birthdays

Make your birthday more meaningful by asking for donations instead of gifts.

A heart-felt thank you

Thank you for thinking of Barnardos in the lead up to your birthday!

Asking your loved ones for donations instead of gifts is a special way to show you care for vulnerable children
and to make a lasting difference with the emotional, financial and practical support they need.
