Regular Giving

How is Regular Giving Beneficial?

As a small local charity, we rely on donations, fundraising and grants to enable us to continue our work.  We don’t receive any statutory funding or financial support from the local authority.  Therefore regular donations from people like you can make a real difference to the lives of disabled children and their families.

Your regular gift helps us plan ahead, so we can make medium and long-term improvements to our facilities and the services we offer.     Your commitment can help us bring joy and laughter into the lives of local disabled children now and in the future.

Option 1 ~ Monthly direct debit through Give As You Live Donate

Setting up a monthly direct debit through Give As You Live is very straightforward.  With a regular donation of as little as £5 per month, you can choose which day of the month you would like the money to come out of your account and cancel at any time.   If you are eligible for Gift Aid (see below) this can be set up at the same time and you can also choose to include the transaction fee.   Set up a direct debit through Give As You Live Donate today.

Option 2 ~ Monthly direct debit through Bacs.

Set up a Direct Debit, direct with us! For as little as £3 a month, you can commit to a regular donation. Regular direct debit Bacs payments can be set up via your own online/telephone banking and you can choose the day of the month your donation is transferred.

If you would like to make a regular donation direct, please contact Carol our Fundraising Coordinator today.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can make your donation go further by opting into the Gift Aid scheme. By opting in we will receive an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.

If you are making a regular payment via Give As You Live Donate, all you need to do is agree to the declaration when you first sign up.  Give As You Live will claim the money directly from the Inland Revenue on our behalf and then it is transferred directly to us.

Even if you donate direct, we can still claim Gift Aid on your donation if you are a UK taxpayer.  To enable us to claim, you just need to complete and return the Gift Aid Declaration form to us when you sign up.  We will do the rest.

Option 3 ~ Payroll Giving

Payroll giving is an easy, tax-efficient way to make a regular donation to our charity.  The Give As You Earn scheme (GAYE) is a popular choice for workers as the donation is taken from your gross salary, before tax, giving immediate tax relief on your donations.   Anyone whose pay is taxed through PAYE can donate through Payroll Giving.

Basic rate taxpayers:  For every £1 that you earn, 20p is paid in tax. This means if you pledge £10 a month, we will receive the full £10, but only £8 will be deducted from your net pay.

Higher rate taxpayers:  If you’re a higher tax rate earner paying 40%, a £10 a month pledge will mean only £6 will be deducted from your net pay.

If you wish to donate via the Give As You Earn scheme, please check with your employer to ensure they are registered and then they can organise this for you. Please be aware that if you have a change of employment in the future, you will need to start a new payroll giving scheme.
