Declutter and donate 

Decluttering during lockdown? Virgin Money Giving and Ziffit have teamed up to create a free service to allow you to sell your old books, CDs, DVDs, Blu-rays and games and donate the proceeds to us. 

It’s so easy and something everyone can do! You just scan your items, box them up, a free courier will collect them and the value will be donated to us.

Get started 

Birthday fundraiser 

Celebrate your lockdown birthday in style, by setting up a Facebook fundraiser. Ask friends who would normally buy you a present (or a drink!) to instead make a donation to support our work.
