Financial support for the Shyira Trust

The Trust does have some fundraising events, but most of its income has been a result of direct giving. We are very grateful to the generous people who have donated more than £900,000 to support our work in Shyira.

Our continued work depends on the generosity of our donors, and we have developed a variety of ways to help people give. Some of these are UK specific, but others can be used anywhere in the world.

There are a variety of ways that people may support the work of the Trust.

Through Direct Giving.  We are always happy to receive donations by cash or cheque. Donors can specify how they would like their gift to be used. We have envelopes that will help simplify giving gifts, or use one of the methods described below.

Credit/Debit card donation. Please visit and click on "Donate Now"

Standing Order. An easy way of supporting the work of the trust is to donate a small amount each month by standing order.

On your tax return if you are a UK taxpayer. Expecting a tax refund? Why not donate all or part of it to the trust by entering NA U3 1U in the appropriate box on your tax return

Gift Aid. If you are a UK tax payer then with your approval the trust can claim a tax refund equivalent to 25% of any gift you give, this at no cost to you.

Through your will. Why not include the trust in your will?

Internet search. Internet search engines earn money from advertising and sponsorship. Why let Google benefit when the money can go to the Shyira Trust?  Simply use as your search engine for the trust to benefit. You could even save that address as a tab on your browser or as one of your favourites.

On-line shopping. Some companies will make a donation to charity each time you shop on-line with them. Go to and register by clicking on “Givers Join” and complete your details, including the Shyira Trust as your charity. Each time you shop on-line go via the Giving Machine website and the trust will get a proportion of the money you spend. There is no cost to you.

Alternative gifts. Stuck for gift ideas for Christmas or birthdays? Take a look at our alternative gift catalogue—it could solve your problem while helping people in Shyira.

Mobile phones/Printer cartridges.  These items (except Epson cartridges) can be recycled, and the trust can raise money from the recycling. There is a box to receive them in St. Luke’s church, or drop them off at one of the addresses below.

Should you be considering support for the Trust, we must remind you of some important considerations.

We believe we are able to assure donors on the correct use of donated money.
