How can you Donate?
The quickest and easiest way to donate is via our PayPal link, which accepts all major cards in addition to a PayPal account. You can make a one-off donation, or set up a regular payment. If elligible for Gift Aid, we would urge you to fill and send us a Gift Aid Declaration alongside.
Setting up a Standing Order gives us a reliable income, is a great way to commit to making a long term difference, and reduces the chore of completing donations slips. To set one up, fill and return our Standing Order Form.
Direct Bank Transfer
You can make a direct bank transfer to our account, details of which can be found on the accompanying form.
Cheque, CAF Voucher, or Cash
Alternatively, if you prefer to donate by physical means, you can send us a cheque, CAF voucher or cash alongside the accompanying form.
If you are elligible, making your donation through the Gift Aid scheme enables us to claim up to an additional 25% of your donation. All you need to do is fill out a Gift Aid declaration form alongside donating via any means of the means above. To read more about how this works, and for the form, click here.
