Help us with a Donation
For some, Christmas and the New Year can be a difficult time of year for many reasons: lack of funds, rising energy bills, strained relationships, mental health problems, homelessness to name a few.
We can all face problems that seem complicated or intimidating. At Citizens Advice, we believe no one should have to face these problems without good quality, independent advice. As a charity, we rely on the support of people like you to be able to continue helping people in our community every day.
It could be specialist advice to help with debt and budgeting to buy presents for the children, or access to funds to help pay rising energy costs as the days are darker and colder. Or practical advice when relationships break down. Or as simple as a warm coat to keep out the cold.
We are always in need of donations to help pay for things like postage, stationery and telephone charges (we write a lot of letters and make many calls on behalf of our clients), so if you want to help someone less fortunate than you this winter, here’s how:
Donate to Us Online!
There are a couple of easy ways to make an online donation:
- Via our Paypal Giving page: this is safe, secure and fee-free and allows you to generate a Gift Aid top-up, boosting your donation by 25%
- Via our Golden Giving page, which also allows you to donate to us safely and securely and to add in Gift Aid just by by ticking a box. You can also make a regular donation
Donate ‘the traditional way’
If you’d prefer to donate by cash, cheque or regular standing order, we’re happy to help.
If you’d like to set up a standing order, please contact us for our bank details.
For cheques, please make payable to ‘Epsom & Ewell Citizens Advice Bureau’, and if you mark it for the attention of the CEO, she will be most delighted to receive it (and write you a thank you letter).
For cash donations, please drop in to see us at our Old Town Hall office anytime between 9am & 5pm any week day.
Our postal address is: The Old Town Hall, The Parade, Epsom, KT18 5AG.
Donate Mobile Phones or empty Inkjet Cartridges
Help us raise money and help the environment at the same time by donating your:
- Unwanted mobile telephones
- Empty inkjet cartridges
We’ll then send them to Recycle 4 Charity who will then make a donation in return.
Simply pop in to the bureau to drop them off or contact email@example.com to arrange an alternative.
Inkjets cartridges are the ones that fit in the palm of your hand and have a circuit board on the bottom. They need to be in good (usable) condition, and sadly we cannot accept any that have been refilled.
Each wanted cartridge that is recycled can raise up to £1.
Eligible brands include HP, Dell, Lexmark, Canon, Samsung, Neopost.
Each phone can make up to £70! They still have value even if your phone is broken, faulty or locked.
Come to a Fundraising Social Event, or follow us on a Sponsored Event
We have events through the year to raise funds. Why not join us at one of our social events, such as the ever popular Quiz Night, where we raise money by giving you a great night out. Or see our sponsored events, such as the Great Legal Walk, or our Great Legal Bake Cake Sale.
Organise your own Fundraising Event
If you’d like to organise your own event, come and talk to us. We’d love to hear from you!
