Other ways to raise funds

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.

Gift Aid collection envelopes

We are now able to provide discreet donation envelopes which also collect gift aid thus increasing relevant donations by 25% at no cost to the donor. These envelopes could be suitable for a variety of occasions (weddings, birthdays etc). Please contact us if you would like some.

Send us your used stamps

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. 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 the charity 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 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 raise as many stamp donations as possible.

Please send your stamp donations to: Xchange Master Ltd, 272 Bath Street, Glasgow G2 4JR.

To receive a FREEPOST LABEL, call 01413 289357 or email narcolepsyuk@xchange-master.co.uk.

We can use your unwanted foreign coins

We are now able to accept donations of foreign coins, and would be very grateful if you would choose to collect them for us. To do so, please request a collection pack by emailing narcolepsyuk@xchange-master.co.uk.
