Donate



We always welcome donations. Our income from subscriptions goes nowhere near covering our expenses, and funding for our activities is extremely difficult to raise.

We work in partnership with the Localgiving website, so that you can make secure donations online via our charity's Localgiving page.

This enables us to avail ourselves of Gift Aid, which increases the value of donations to charities by allowing them to reclaim basic rate tax on your gift. A 10 donation turns into 12.50 with Gift Aid, and taking into account Localgiving's processing fee, translates into 11.67 for us if you are a UK taxpayer and donate this way.

Localgiving run fund-matching drives from time to time, when they will double the amount of money you donate.

However, as Localgiving charge a processing fee, if you are not a UK taxpayer it is normally not the best option. Unless you donate during a fund-matching drive, we receive more money if you donate by other means. If you wish to donate by cheque or by bank transfer, please email Isabel Huebner at selmesg7@googlemail.com and she will give you either the address to which to send us your gift, or our bank details.

Thank you very much for your generosity.
