Other ways to help

Apart from direct donations, there are other ways that you can contribute to our work.

Give as you live

Please support us every time you shop online. Narcolepsy UK has joined forces with Give as you Live to raise valued funding via our supporters' normal online shopping.

Simple and free!

With Give as you Live, thousands of brands including Amazon, Play.com, John Lewis and Expedia have signed up to donate to us a percentage of every purchase you make online. All you have to do is register and follow the instructions, all at no cost to you and at no cost to us. The average shopper will raise around £2.10 per month through what they already buy online.

Give it a try

Please try Give as you Live today, and pass this message on to your family and friends, so that they can help us too, all without spending anything extra!

Virgin Money Giving

If you are getting involved in a sponsored event, or even setting one up yourself, you can use the Virgin Money Giving website. On it you can create an individual web page for your sponsored event, enabling you to collect sponsors and funds online. You can also use it as a way to donate the proceeds of an offline sponsored event. Narcolepsy UK has a dedicated page on Virgin Money Giving where you can find out more: Click here to visit Narcolepsy UK on Virgin Money Giving.

Payroll giving

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.  Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so each £1.00 you give will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.

96% of companies feel that Payroll Giving is something a good employer should offer....

If your employer operates a Payroll Giving scheme, please use it to support us. If they don't, please ask them to consider setting up a scheme. Research shows that companies which offer Payroll Giving believe it improves the company image, enhances community involvement programmes, and supports employee volunteering.

Remember us in your will

By leaving a gift to Narcolepsy UK, you can help us to be there for people suffering with the effects of narcolepsy, long into the future.

It's easier than you think, and means we will be able to help even more people suffering from this debilitating life-long condition.

A gift in memory

Donations in memory of loved ones are very special gifts and, as such, are deeply appreciated by Narcolepsy UK. Your gift will help us to carry on our important work and to provide vital services to help people with narcolepsy and those who care for them.

Stamp Appeal

Please collect and donate your used stamps to help Narcolepsy UK raise much needed funds. All you need to do is collect them all, request a FREEPOST label and pop them in the post to us. It is that easy. Every donation we receive is vital to help us continue to help Support people with Narcolepsy, their Families, Carers and others interested in improving their quality of life. The charity is self supporting, we seldom receive any Government Grants, making it all the more reliant on the community spirit of fundraising. Why not ask your family and friends to collect as many donations as they can? Maybe your children can also get involved at school, having their friends and teachers bring in envelopes in for them to donate. Every donation we receive with a return address on it, will receive confirmation of receipt. We do hope that you will help us in raising as many Stamp Donations as possible.

Please send your Stamp Donations to: Narcolepsy UK - STAMP APPEAL, PO Box 524, Stevenage, SG19LZ.
