running expenses - Very few charitable trusts will give
money for general running expenses. They nearly all like to give
for "things" - like photocopiers, computers, furniture,
etc - or specific "projects" (setting up a support group,
creating a garden area …). Our single greatest need is for
day-to-day running costs - heat, light, rent, rates, stationery.
It isn't glamorous I'm afraid, but by donating to our running expenses
you are making a major and direct contribution to the Centre.
you would like to contribute to either of the above, you may do
Donating via our MyDonate website, which is
very straightforward and costs us nothing. We receive 100% of
all monies donated AND they deal with the Gift Aid for us. You
don't need to be registered with them to donate (although if you
do take the time to register, it slightly speeds the process up
in future). For all of the above reasons, it's our preferred method
of receiving donations. Just click belong to go to our MyDonate
page, which is self-explanatory:
by PayPal: This is a very simple
and fast method suitable for anyone with an internet connection
and a bank account/credit card. It's very straightforward and
costs the donor nothing to make a donation. Please click on one

ACCEPTABLE forms of payment: Personal sterling
cheques, sterling cash (sent by Registered Post please), postal
orders, CAF and other charity cheques and International Money Orders.
We can also accept US checks and cash, via a trusted US intermediary

you are paying, please indicate CLEARLY what you would like your
donation to be used for - the Sheila Robinson Memorial Fund or General
Expenses - and also if you are making a donation in memory of a
friend, family member or colleague.
- The centre can claim back the tax from donations made by UK taxpayers
provided we hold a properly worded declaration from them. This is
a vital source of income for us.

methods, could we ask you to complete the Gift Aid Declaration on
the donation form and send it to us. If you are paying by PayPal
or Nochex - please send the Declaration separately. The Declaration
only needs to be signed once - you do not need to complete one every
time you make a donation.
