Anyone who pays UK income tax is applicable to give on a tax free basis – so for each pound you donate, it will actually only cost you 80p – or even 60p if you are a higher tax rate payer!

All you need to do is complete a form (usually available from your Human Resources team) and then your payroll department will do the rest.

One of our payroll giving donors, Damian Navas, explains why he signed up to this method of giving:

”My company sent round an email explaining how it all worked and it was a no brainer. I chose to give to your Neo-natal Surgical Ward…I get an extra boost every time I get paid, safe in the knowledge that I’m helping the newborns at my favourite hospital!”
