Credit and Debit card donations can be made securely online via the Charities Aid Foundation. There's a big advantage here, any Gift-Aid will be added directly to your donation. If you pay tax in the UK just tick the Gift Aid box and, at no extra cost to you, the reclaimed tax will be added directly to your donation, so a £10.00 donation becomes (after the admin fee) a £12.18 donation to the Association.
Make a Regular Donation
One-off and regular donations by standing order can be one of the most effective ways to help the Association. Our progress is largely dependent on funds available and we still have plenty of challenges ahead. Please complete and send to your own bank. Available in HTML and PDF (26kB) formats.
Gift Aid Declaration
If you are a UK taxpayer, you can make your contributions worth nearly 30 per cent more, at no extra cost to you. For every £10 donated, the Association can claim an extra £2.82 from the Inland Revenue, making your donations and membership subscriptions worth even more.
Please complete either the HTML or PDF (33kB) forms and return.
