Making a Difference

Please help to support the work of our Charity by donating if you can. Your contributions help us to make a real difference to real lives and we appreciate your support.

The Friendly Almshouses relies on the kind support of its donors to help it to provide safe and affordable living for women and maintain, improve and enhance the buildings they occupy.

If you want to donate, charity giving couldn't be easier. Whatever your budget and preference, there's an option to suit you. And remember, if you are a UK tax-payer, you can sign up for gift aid which means that the charity can claim an extra 25p for every pound you donate.

Here's how you can donate

We use BT MyDonate to collect on-line donations. BT MyDonate is a not-for-profit online fundraising service provided by UK telecommunications company BT for charities in the UK as part of their investment in the community. It's a simple, safe and secure way to make a one-off donation, set up a recurring donation or raise sponsorship. You can donate right now if you like by clicking the MyDonate icon on this page.

You can also make a regular donation to the charity directly from your salary through a Payroll Giving scheme or a Give as You Earn scheme. This provides a regular source of revenue for your charity and it's tax free! Alternatively, you could leave a charitable legacy by leaving money in your will. If you consider giving in this way, we recommend that you speak to your solicitor. You will need our name and address and charity/company numbers, which you can find at the foot of this page.

Secure donations using MyDonate

You may choose to donate either a fixed or recurring amount using any debit or credit card.
