Ways you can help us:
- by making a donation
You can make a donation at any time. Please make your cheque payable to the Puffin Trust. If you are a UK taxpayer then you can help us to make your gift go further by signing a Gift Aid Declaration, meaning we can claim back an extra 28% of the value of your gift from the Inland Revenue – which doesn’t cost you anything, but will make a huge difference to us.
- by making an ‘in memoriam’ gift
Making a donation in memory of a friend or relative can also help us carry on our work. People often ask for donations to charity instead of flowers at a funeral and we can provide information on our work and Gift Aid forms if you wanted to do this.
- by leaving a gift in your will
Every gift is greatly appreciated and makes a difference. Writing a will and leaving a gift is one way to help us.
- by taking part in or organising a fundraising event
Events can be a fun way not only to raise funds for us but also highlight the work that we do. They may range from small events such as a coffee morning right up to organising a fashion show or taking part in a marathon.
