Virgin Money Giving

We need new sponsors and donors to enable us to continue our vital work. If you would like to become one of our sponsors, if you have a payroll giving scheme in your company, or if you are a private individual and wish to make either a one-off donation or a regular payment or standing order we’d love to hear from you! And if you are a taxpayer, completing a Gift Aid declaration will enable us to reclaim 25p in the £ from the Government, so if you donate £10, we can claim an additional £2.50. It all adds up!

Become a sponsor, make a one-off donation, set up a direct debit or standing order.
