Donations go to people just like you who are facing very difficult times, but if you would like to make a large donation to support a specific cause or programme please get in touch with us to discuss where you would like your money to go.

Gifts of money to UK charities by companies are made before tax is deducted (i.e. out of gross income or profits) so no Gift Aid declaration is required. Companies can claim tax relief for donations to UK charities as a charge against income in their corporation tax computation. There are also tax effective ways of donating equipment, stock or manpower. For more information about tax when your limited company gives to charity visit GOV.uk.
The challenges your donations solve are very specific and life-changing.

£100 buys warmth for someone who cannot pay their utility bill and is at risk. Remember that ill health is often behind an individual’s inability to cover life’s basic expenses; causing death in extreme temperatures.
£200 supplies an apprentice under financial pressure with tools to keep them in the workplace environment. Did you know many apprentices are supporting one or more relatives during their training period? Assisting them now creates an economic and social benefit for life!
£500 pays for a respite break for people caring for relatives with dementia. Often carers are at serious risk of mental and physical health breakdown. Caring is a role we don’t know we can do….until we are called on to do it.
£1000 helps get a person mobile! Not the phone type of mobile but an absolute essential item for a child, worker or retiree who has been born with or contracted a disease or disability that stops them from walking, catching public transport and regular driving/riding activities.
