Wonderfully quirky and with a whole lot of heart, we love the new limited-edition favours designed by Dame Zandra Rhodes for Cancer Research UK…
With her unforgettable colour-pop burst of shocking-pink hair, British fashion designer, icon, and all-round ‘Woman Who Inspires’ Dame Zandra Rhodes, has lent a little of her starlight to creating two new and limited-edition favours exclusively for Cancer Research UK.

A true connoisseur of textiles, fabrics and all things colourful, Zandra has previously designed for Princess Diana, Freddy Mercury, Diana Ross and Helen Mirren… so you’re in excellent company! The heart and ribbon-shaped pins were cast from a unique design by Dame Zandra, featuring her bold ‘Face’ and ‘Wiggle’ symbols. The pin badges are part of a range of wedding favours in aid of Cancer Research UK, which includes badges, wristbands and packets of forget-me-not flower seeds. As well as making a beautiful gift, the favours are a touching way to celebrate a friend or family member surviving cancer, or to remember a loved-one.
Dame Zandra has said: “I wanted to create a design that had a meaning to me and chose classic Zandra Rhodes imagery: The Face and The Wiggle to enhance and beautify the pins. The ribbon is a worldwide symbol for giving and good will recognised wherever it is seen. It shows the wearer cares and believes in the power of the symbol. So many people’s lives are touched by cancer and couples buying these favours are doing a wonderful thing to help Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. I’d like to thank them for their incredible support.”
Cancer Research UK asks couples to make a suggested donation for each favour (£2.50 per Dame Zandra Rhodes pin badge), which goes towards the charity’s life-saving work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all cancers.
