Lighthouse does not charge for children to attend so that no child is unable to attend but we do need to pay for the marquees and other equipment that help to make Lighthouse such an exciting week. We are fortunate that all of our wonderful helpers kindly volunteer their time and do not get paid. In total it costs about £70 per child to run Lighthouse each year. These costs are totally funded by donations and fund raising - any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.
You can make a donation to Lighthouse using MyDonate - a service offered free of fees by BT, so all of your donation (less card transaction fees) will come to Lighthouse. If you are a tax payer you will be asked if you wish to Gift Aid the donation - if you do we will receive an extra 25% of your donation from HMRC. You can use any debit or credit card to make a payment - just click on the MyDonate box below to be taken to the Lighthouse MyDonate page:
You can donate to Lighthouse by text using a service offered by JustGiving together with Vodafone. You will be charged your donation plus your network text charge, and all of your donation will come to Lighthouse.
If you are a tax payer you will be asked if you wish to Gift Aid the donation - if you do we will receive an extra 25% of your donation from HMRC. Note you must have the bill payer's permission to donate by text.

Paying by standing order allows us to manage our income and expenditure across the year. If you already donate to Lighthouse on an annual or other regular basis, please consider changing this to a standing order. All you need to do is fill out our standing order form.
Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, Lighthouse will receive an extra 25 pence from HMRC, helping your donation go further. This means that £70 can be turned into £87.50 - and it doesn't cost you a thing. If you are a higher rate tax payer you can also claim a rebate on your giving. If you wish to Gift Aid your donation, please print, fill out and send a gift aid form with your donation.
You need to be a United Kingdom tax payer, paying an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax equal to the tax that will be claimed on your donations. If this is the case, then please tick the Gift Aid box.
