Payroll Giving

Celebrate 30 years of Payroll Giving by signing up to our Payroll Giving Scheme. This enables you to donate to your favourite charity on a regular or one-off basis by automatic deductions from your monthly pay. A monthly gift of £5 from your take-home pay to your chosen charity will be automatically boosted to £6.25 for a 20% rate tax payer and £8.33 for a 40% rate tax payer. Since we relaunched our scheme in October 2014 staff have donated over £350,000 to good causes!
