Giving in Celebration

Planning a birthday, anniversary or wedding?

We can send you donation envelopes to use at these special occasions, so please email us at fundraising@sickchildrenstrust.org

You can also browse our online shop, where we sell a selection of items that would be great used as wedding favours. 

Giving in memory

Giving in memory is a meaningful way to support sick children and their families while honouring someone special in your life. We are extremely grateful to people who fundraise In Memoriam as a special way of paying tribute to their loved ones and of providing a positive legacy for the future.

By following this link to MuchLoved and choosing the ‘Create a Tribute’ option you can set up your memorial website in a matter of minutes. Then your friends and family can make secure online donations directly to The Sick Children’s Trust.

Trust and Foundations

Are you a trustee or do you know of a charitable trust or foundation who might like to support us? If so, please get in touch, we’d be delighted to invite you to visit one of our ‘Homes from Home’. You can see first-hand the difference your support can make to sick children and their families. Email us at fundraising@sickchildrenstrust.org

Major Donors

If you are interested in making a major gift of £5,000 and above, then we would be delighted to help you. Please get in touch by calling us on 020 7638 4066 or emailing fundraising@sickchildrenstrust.org

Leave a gift in your will

Gifts in wills help us to plan for our future. You can leave a legacy to The Sick Children’s Trust, by leaving a gift in your will. Your gift will ensure that we’ll be there for families so they can be together, giving them one less thing to worry about.

Leaving a gift is easy to do. You will need to speak to a Solicitor to ensure your will is drawn up correctly.

We’d love to hear from you if you have already left a gift in your will or if you are planning to leave a gift to us, so please email us at fundraising@sickchildrenstrust.org

Donate your car

Let Giveacar know about your unwanted car or motorbike. They’ll collect it for free and decide whether to auction or scrap it. Choose us as the charity you’d like the proceeds to be donated to and Giveacar will handle the rest. Find out more here.

CAF or Charities Trust

We accept donations from individuals and companies through Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) and Charities Trust.

If you have an account with either of these, and would prefer to give in this way we’d be very grateful for your donation.
