Other ways to donate
A gift in your Will
We understand that when writing your Will your loved ones must come first. But not only could your Will help secure your family’s future, it could also help ensure the future of our much-needed children’s hospice service. That’s why we are pleased to be able to offer a free Will writing service with Beyond.
Every gift can make a positive difference to the lives of the children and families we support. Big or small, it is what these gifts achieve together that makes them so incredible.
You can call us on 01628 822777 and make a secure payment over the phone.

Payroll giving via ‘Give As You Earn’ is a simple and effective way to donate a regular amount to Alexander Devine. It’s very easy to set up, and it allows us to plan ahead, knowing that there is a regular income stream coming in.
You can donate straight from your gross salary, and receive immediate tax relief, so if you donate £25, it will only cost you £19.50. If you would like to contribute in this way, just contact your Payroll Department and ask if they already operate a ‘Give As You Earn’ scheme and, if they do, say that you would like to sign up.
Gifts in memory
Fundraising in memory of a loved one can make a fitting tribute to that special person and the funds raised will help future generations.
You can do this using our Just Giving page. Click on the ‘Fundraise for us’ button, log in or register and then select us as your charity. You can then create a ‘Remembering Someone’ page and invite people to donate.
If you are organising or attending the funeral of family or close friend, you might like to commemorate their life by donating to Alexander Devine rather than buying or sending flowers. Contact us on 01628 822777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
