Donating online is by far the simplest method of donating to us. Virgin money giving operates a reliable and secure system and adding Gift Aid to your donation is very simple by this method.

Please note: You can use foreign debit and credit cards to make donations online. You must state the donation amount in pounds sterling but this will be automatically converted into your currency and taken from your account.
