Charities we Support
Don't forget to sign up for Gift Aid whenever you donate money to charity. The charity will benefit by earning an extra 20% from HMRC, on your donation.
FARM-Africa works with poor African farmers, helping them to produce more food for their families and they want to make sure future generations don't have to depend on handouts of aid. The African Dowry site is where you can help transform the lives of poor farmers in Africa as part of the celebration of your special day. You can set up a gift list alongside your traditional wedding list, or make it the entire list for your wedding, it's up to you. Great gift ideas range from seeds to shallow wells, and from chickens to village vets starter kits.
Survival is the only international organisation supporting tribal peoples worldwide. It works for tribal peoples' rights in three complementary ways: education, advocacy and campaigns. It also offers tribal people themselves a platform to address the world and works closely with local indigenous organisations, with a focus on tribal peoples who have the most to lose, usually those most recently in contact with the outside world. Survival believes that public opinion is the most effective force for change. Its power will make it harder, and eventually impossible, for governments and companies to oppress tribal peoples.
The National Association for Children of Alcoholics operate on a shoestring and offer a helpline to thousands of young and old 'children'.

The charity will get an extra 20% from HMRC.
