How can you help?

The Trust relies on the generosity of the Scottish public to survive. There are many ways you can help to support our work. Some of these are detailed below but you may want to organise an event yourself. Dances, barbecues and coffee mornings are popular.

Sponsored events

You can either decide to organise your own event – walks, cycles, slims are good ideas – or participate in one of the many Marathons which take place country-wide.

Using this method for fundraising is secure and tax efficient with an automatic 28% extra in Gift Aid added to donations.
