The donations we receive from the individuals, churches , schools, groups and businesses in our community make it possible for us to continue supporting the increasing number of individuals and families in crisis. Without these essential donations we wouldn’t be able to help the increasing number of individuals and families in our community who are struggling to make ends meet and desperately need our support.
“Without the help from the Welcome Centre I wouldn’t have anywhere else to turn” – said one of our service users
Make a cash donation
The easiest and fastest way to help make a difference is to make a cash donation through BTMyDonate, a free and online cash donation service. You can set up a one off payment as well as regular giving.
Cash donations are particularly helpful because they give us flexibility in sourcing food and, if Gift-Aided, give us an extra 25%. Donations can be cash, cheque (payable to “The Welcome Centre”), bank transfer or by BTMyDonate. Gift Aid Form
An easy way to raise funds for The Welcome Centre is to turn your online shopping into donations for us – Over 2,700 well known retailers including Amazon, Ebay, Tesco, Asda and John Lewis will donate a small percentage to The Welcome Centre when you shop and costs you nothing. All you need to do is register at Easy Fundraising and when you choose a cause to support, select The Welcome Centre then get shopping – it couldn’t be easier !
Set up a regular payment to us
A regular standing order to the Welcome Centre is a fantastic way to help all year long. It allows us to plan for future needs more effectively and to purchase fresh food items in addition to the tins and dried food that are donated creating a balanced food pack. If you would like us to keep in touch with you please let us know when you set up a standing order up. Download now Standing order form

Support from your business could make a real difference to the Welcome Centre. In the current economic climate the need for our emergency packs has increased significantly – check out our corporate pages and join our growing support from other corporate sponsors in making a real difference to those who so desperately need it.
“The thing we really like about the Welcome Centre is that for very small overheads it touches the lives of so many people in such a positive way, both in terms of giving and receiving. Most of the essentials supplied are donated by local people and well over 50% of the people they support only need 2 or 3 packs, to help them over difficult times, before they are self-sufficient again.” – One of our corporate sponsors.
