Gift Aid Matters!
If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider adding Gift Aid to your donation. Gift Aid allows us to claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give, at no extra cost to you. It makes no difference to you but it makes a big difference to us! Thank you again for your generous support.

Regular Donation Scheme
