you really make a difference!

We work very hard to generate as much income as we can ourselves – though our shops, running our lottery and applying for grants. But that can only raise so much, and since the government only meets around 6% of our needs, we rely heavily on the generous support of the community.

Other ways to give

There are lots of ways to give and occasions to do it. Whether or not you’re donating today, why not consider some of the other ways you can show your support for our work?

Play our lottery

For just £1 a week, you could win up to £10,000! Our lottery alone covers our costs for a whole month.

Leave a legacy

Adding a short, simple clause to your will means you can ensure your continuing support for us after your death.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid let us convert every £1 donated by UK taxpayers into a whopping £1.25 – and it’s at no cost to you!

In memory

At major events (like weddings and funerals), some supporters ask for donations to us instead of flowers or gifts.

Buy a brick

Buying a colourful glass block in our Celebration Wall lets you pay tribute to someone close to your heart.

Our shops

Donate your unwanted goods or make a donation in one of our 13 charity shops!
