There are so many easy ways to support us.
If you need ideas for fundraising have a look at our A-Z of ideas – there are so many opportunities for making a difference. Here are a few other ways which can make a difference.
Gift Aid is a government scheme which allows charities to claim an extra 25p for every £1 donated – at no extra cost to you. You’ll need to be eligible and we can only claim Gift Aid on certain donations.
If you’re a higher rate taxpayer, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation.
You’ll need to give us permission to claim Gift Aid on your donations – download our gift aid form here.
