Make your donation go further with Give Me 5 and benefit our befriending scheme


We have selected Eddie’s Befriending Scheme to be our benefitting service from a new match funding opportunity offered by ‘Local Giving’ where all £5 donations made on two nominated dates have the potential to be selected to be doubled by their #Givemefive campaign.  ‘Local Giving’ receives on-line donations on behalf of Charities.  Eddie’s are registered with Local Giving and we provide a link on our home page at http://www.eddies.org.uk/

On Wednesday 28th January and Wednesday 25th  February 1,000, £5 donations made with Local Giving will be randomly selected to be doubled in value using Government funds.  Eddie’s would potentially receive £5 extra for a one time donation of £5.  If £5 is donated, we could receive £10.

The system has recently been simplified and it now couldn’t be easier. You can donate in the following ways:

1. Click on the link above (our web page)
2. Click on 'Local Giving' (on the home page)
3. Click 'Donate Now'
4. Enter the amount, click 'Donate' You can enter your name for us or donate anonymously and there is an opportunity to comment 'For Eddie's Befriending Scheme'.
5. Payments can be made using PayPal or a Debit or Credit Card.
