Donate to Purley Food Hub
We are always delighted to receive money donations. These are used to replenish dwindling stocks or provide food and financial support to our partner organisations – Purley Food Stop; St Francis Food Stop, Selsdon; The Vine Food Bank and Fieldway Food Stop, New Addington; Happy Baby Community, Croydon; and Croydon Refugee Day Centre.
Money donations also cover our overheads, though we have no wage bills as we depend entirely on volunteers.
There are three ways that you can give:
1. Make a one-off or regular donation online, with or without Gift Aid. Under the Gift Aid Scheme tax can be claimed back from HM Revenue & Customs – 25p for every £1 given – which means the Food Hub actually receives more than you give.
2. Donate while shopping online, at no cost to yourself.
3. Make a payment by cheque or standing order direct from your bank account.
Make a one-off or regular donation
Please click here to visit the Purley Food Hub page. You have the option of adding Gift Aid to your donation and you can give anonymously if you wish.
You also have the option to set up your own fundraising appeal that links directly to Purley Food Hub. To get started go to our Stewardship page and click where it says “or start fundraising” below the Food Hub logo (see screenshot below/right).
Donate while you shop online at no cost to yourself
This is a great way of fundraising, using a cashback model but with the saving coming to the Food Hub. The Food Hub uses easyfundraising.org.uk, the UK’s biggest charity shopping site.easyfundraising's Purley Food Hub page first. You then search for a retailer in the Search box at the top of the screen. If they're listed, click on the link to visit their site and carry on shopping. The Food Hub will receive a donation based on what you spend.
If you shop on Amazon, you can support the Food Hub at the same time with no cost to yourself. You first have to set up an account at smile.amazon.co.uk - please note this is not the same as amazon.co.uk. Only purchases made through smile.amazon.co.uk are eligible.Once you are logged in, type "purley food hub" (without quote marks) in the search box and follow the prompts. You can then shop on the Amazon site as normal. Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) of eligible purchases to the Food Hub.
