My friend is organising a suprise party for her dad and is sending out invites.she wants to state on the invites that no presents are to be brought,but if you would like to make a donation to cancer care or the hospice that can be done.how would you word it without sounding cheeky... 'no presents please,your presence on the night is presence enough.donations to cancer care if desired' ????? .her mum passed away from cancer and this is how she would like her to be remembered on the night.thanks so much!! :thnk

Yeah something like that but maybe make it a little snappier so it doesn't read as long. I don't think it would look cheeky at all. It's a lovely idea.

What about "Your presence is your present, however, should you wish to make a donation to cancer care it would be very much appreciated." Something like that?
