Regular giving

Become a ‘Friend of Charity Link’

Regular givers (or ‘friends’ as we like to call them!), who usually set up a regular donation electronically via their bank, make a huge difference to our work as they enable us to budget ahead and plan for the future – and ensure that more local people in hardship receive support.

Would you consider becoming a friend of Charity Link?

Your contribution, however big or small, will make a huge difference to the individuals and families that we help. And, because of the unique way in which we work, for every £10 donated we can raise £50 from charitable trusts that are available to help those in need.

During a year we can convert:
£3 a month into £180 for someone in need – enough to buy a child a new bed and bedding
£5 a month into £300 – enough to buy a family a new cooker so that they can eat a hot meal and a supply of food
£10 a month into £600 – enough to provide three families with a fridge freezer
£25 a month into £1,500 – enough to help ten families in crisis to heat their home during the winter months
£50 a month  into £3,000 – enough to buy an electric wheelchair to help prevent someone from becoming housebound

The amounts shown are excluding Gift Aid; if you pay tax Charity Link can also claim back 25p for every pound you donate at no extra cost to you!

It is quick and easy to become a Friend of Charity Link. You can sign up online via our Justgiving page by clicking on the ‘make a monthly donation’ button and stating how much you would like to give and whether you are eligible to add Gift Aid.

Alternatively you can download our Friend of Charity Link Form (a standing order mandate form for your bank or email rachel.markham@charity-link.org for a copy.

Whatever amount you are able to give you will be helping to ensure that more local people have a decent standard of living, no matter what crisis, illness, disability or difficulty they are facing.

Thank you
