Every year, we rely on half of our funding (around £75,000) to come from our local community, from individual donors, local churches, businesses, and fundraising events, as well as the income we generate through our café and men’s shed. With the launch of our new website, we created a page dedicated to fundraising so if you would like to support us, but aren’t sure how to, this is the page for you!
If you would like to make a donation, you can follow the link to donate online, or if you’d prefer to donate in person, you can download our Gift Aid form to ensure your donation is increased by 25% (if you’re a uk taxpayer). If you would like to set up a standing order, you can download our standing order form. If you don’t have access to the internet, please call 01395 224218 and we can send you the forms by post. On this page, you’ll also find the link to download our Fundraising Pack which is full of handy tips and advice to consider when organizing a fundraiser, as well as hundreds (well, a lot!) of fundraising ideas, from cake sales to skydives!!
Whether you’re an individual looking to support us, or your church or business want to fundraise, whether you’re thinking a one-off or nominating us as your Charity of the Year, we are so grateful for the support. We’ll happily provide balloons, banners, collecting tins and buckets, sponsorship forms and plenty of Open Door literature, and will support you in any way we can to make sure it is a big success…
So, happy fundraising!!
