Alternatively, you can donate to the Friends in any of the following ways. We would be very grateful if you would also complete and send us a Donation Form so that we thank you, ensure we communicate with you as you wish and perhaps claim Gift Aid too:
Cash in any of the Friends’ collection boxes in the hospital including at the main reception desk or in our MoneySpinner near the Brewnel Café on the ground floor. Provided the amount you donate at any one time is not more than £30, we can claim Gift Aid (25% of your donation) on your donation. You do not have to be a tax-payer nor fill out any forms for us to do this.
If you would like us to acknowledge receipt, please put your money in an envelope with your name and email or postal address. We will only contact you to thank you.
Cheques or CAF Vouchers payable to Friends of Bristol Eye Hospital posted or delivered to us. As above, these may be dropped into any of our collecting boxes or the MoneySpinner.
During the Covid-19 crisis, staff are exceptionally busy and we cannot visit the hospital often to collect, so it may be some time before we receive any cheques (or cash) and are able to thank you. Accordingly, we recommend you call or email the Treasurer, and we will give you a home address for you to send us a cheque and any forms by post.
CAF Card – If you have an account with CAF, you should be able to make a single or regular donation from your account to us.
Credit or Debit Card in the hospital – If you go to the smaller ground floor reception desk (the one with shutters opposite the door into the St Odilia garden), they can take a donation (or a purchase for Christmas cards) using a card reader. Donations of up to £30 automatically qualify for Gift Aid (even if you are not a taxpayer).
Internet Banking –You can donate directly to our bank account either by Open Banking or by BACS:
