Ways To Donate

Making a single donation is a simple yet impactful way to enhance the lives of the children and families we support. James Hopkins Trust has always depended on charitable support to provide essential care and assistance to Gloucestershire’s young children with life-limited & life-threatened conditions.

What difference will my donation make?

A single charity donation of £10 to JHT could help us pay for specialist equipment used to support the children and babies’ medical needs while they stay with us.

  • £20 could help us provide resources for a fun family sessions where magic memories are made together.
  • £50 could pay for specialist toys the children can enjoy while they are at Kites Corner.
  • £100 could pay for nursing supplies to help us care for our children safely
  • £200 could cover the costs of one week’s energy bills to charge the specialist equipment and keep the centre warm and welcoming night and day.

By downloading and completing our simple Gift Aid declaration form we can increase your donation by 25p for every £1 that you give. (Please also include your name and address so that we can send you a thank you letter!).

Any charitable donation you can make is valuable in helping us to continue the work that we do.

As a charity, we rely greatly on supporters just like you. Donations and fundraising form the backbone of our income, crucial for making our vital work possible.

After you have cared for your loved ones in your will, please consider including us to extend that care to the families we support. We promise you will be making a real difference.

If this is something you would like to do, we would recommend you seek advice from a solicitor or registered Will writer when writing a Will. They will be able to talk you through the process.

In memory giving

Giving in memory of a loved one is a very poignant way to remember someone special whilst also helping to raise money to support local children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families.

There are a couple of ways you can choose to donate in memory of your loved one:

You can set up an ‘In Memory page’ via Just Giving. Your page will stay open for as long as you like – so you, friends and family can add donations and messages for years to come. Make a page in loving memory of someone you care about.

Alternatively, you could collect donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral or memorial service. Your funeral director will be able to help arrange this or we can help by providing collection envelopes. These make it easy for friends and family to donate and include the option to add gift aid to help raise more for James Hopkins Trust.

Once we have received the money raised at the collection, we will send a thank you letter and let you know how much has been raised in memory of your loved one.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. It is a scheme administered by the HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) which allows us to claim 25p for every £1 that you donate. So, for example, if you donate £20 we can claim an extra £5, making your gift worth £25.

For more information and to see if you are eligible to claim gift aid, please visit www.gov.uk/donating-to-charity/gift-aid
