Talk to us

If you would rather contact us directly and talk through your questions and ideas, Kerry Mackay is our Community Fundraising Officer and is happy to help.

Please note that our team is working remotely following the UK government’s guidance relating to the COVID-19 outbreak. We’re still very much on hand to assist with your queries relating to donations, but please be aware it might take a little longer to process donations sent through the post. The most efficient way to donate just now is online or via bank transfer. Unfortunately, we can’t take donations over the phone at the moment. Thank you for your patience and support.
