Payroll giving

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.

A gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will is a lasting way that you can support us and help us continue to reach more children and their families in the future.

Any donation, small or large, will be gratefully received. Whatever you decide, your solicitor will be able to advise you on the best option for your circumstances. If you would like further information about how to do this, please do get in touch with our team fundraising@alexanderdevine.org.

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 fundraising@alexanderdevine.org for more information.

Alexander Devine on Facebook

We wanted to pay tribute to a very special young man who has been part of our Alexander Devine family for the past six years. A few weeks ago we had our final home visit with him before he transitions to an adult hospice.

This extraordinary young man has has brought so much joy, laughter and love to us all Alexander Devine. Amongst many things, we will miss his cheeky sense of humour and love of singing!

Here's to you Tomi, our superhero!

Thank you so much to Naomi from Wild Heart Yoga for helping to raise money for us. Naomi is streaming live yoga sessions for free and asking students to make a donation to Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service. Head to her page for details of all her classes.First live stream class done! That was really scary for me but so glad I did it. Was wonderful to see all my lovely students, Miss you all so much! Shoved everything out of the way, had a big roll of carpet in front of me, a step ladder, paint and my dog moaning but it was lovely all the same 😂
I’ll be teaching more classes next week - details to follow. Classes will free but I’m asking people to donate money to charities. My suggested is @alexanderdevinehospice but the choice is yours.
Let’s use this as a chance to give something back! Much love ♥️💫🤪🙌🏻 #yogaonline #zoom #wildheartyoga #charityyoga #stayhome #yoga #spreadlove

Ps. Message me to book onto classes
