Donate your Birthday

Birthday rhyme

By asking friends and family to give you donations for WDC instead of gifts, you'll be helping to give the gift of freedom to whales and dolphins in captivity.

We'll help you celebrate by sending you a birthday card and, afterwards, a certificate and Thank You.  For more details, click below or get in touch at [email protected]!

       Silence is       Golden

Little girl silence

The saying goes that 'Silence is golden', which just happens to be the colour of £1 coins too!

Keeping silent is quite possibly the hardest challenge of all - are you brave enough to give it a go?

Sponsorship forms available from [email protected] or set up a JustGiving page.

Humpback whale

Our Science team regularly monitors populations of Risso's dolphins off the Isle of Lewis and Bardsey Island and often needs new equipment.

Items purchased from the team's 'Wish List' will be delivered directly to our offices, but please let us know that you are purchasing an item so we can thank you for your generosity and let you know it has arrived.

In Memory Giving

Saying goodbye to a loved one is never easy but, if you know he/she was passionate about whales, dolphins and porpoises,  donations instead of flowers at a funeral or thanksgiving service are a wonderful way to help the creatures they cared about.

Your funeral director will manage donations in memory of your loved one and, if you wish, WDC will be pleased to provide information for the Order of Service card or to put by the collection box.  Alternatively, you can set up an online donation page on Memory Giving.

To continue supporting WDC in memory of your loved one by making regular donations on specific dates (eg their birthday), you can set up a WDC In Memoriam Fund.  Please contact us for more details.

If you, or your funeral director, need any assistance, please call us on 01249 449500 or email [email protected]
