Please Donate

You can make a real difference and help our work by donating to the R&RA:

• Make an online donation

• Make a direct payment or set up a standing order via your bank, or through Charities Aid if you have a CAF account.

• Send us a cheque

• By leaving the R&RA a legacy in your will.

Whichever method you use, thank you!  As a relatively small charity without any endowments or commercial backing, our ability to carry on this much needed work depends on the continuing generosity of our donors.


Instant card payments:

Charity Choice: A secure website which allows you to make online donations directly to the R&RA, and opt to pay the card charge so that everything you donate goes directly to us. If you tick your agreement to gift-aid, that will increase your donation by 25%.

You can also make your donation anonymously if you prefer.

A gift by will is a wonderful way to benefit the R&RA. We are enormously grateful for the gifts we receive in this way which make a huge difference to what we are able to do for others facing the difficulties of old age. Gifts to a charity are normally exempt from inheritance tax and many people find this a practical and attractive way to benefit a cause they may have supported or been helped by in their lifetime.

Please get in touch with us if you would like any help with a suitable wording or to discuss any areas of our work you would particularly like to support.
