By standing order

If you would like to set up a standing order please email and we will provide our bank details so that you can arrange this online with your bank.

By give as you earn

Give As You Earn is a Government initiative to encourage donors to support charities on a long-term basis. It is a way of giving tax-free. It is the largest and most successful payroll giving scheme in the UK and is the simplest way to give to a charity direct from your pay tax free.

Gift aid

If you pay UK income or capital gains tax you can give long term tax effective support to the charity by making a gift aid declaration. This will increase the value of your gift by 25% . In this way a gift of £20 for example will become £25.60 once the tax has been reclaimed from HMRC.

Volunteer your time

We need more people to help occasionally on Tuesday or Friday. This would not necessarily be every week or for the whole time we are open.

  • Maybe you could use our catering standard kitchen to help prepare and/or cook the lunch for about 25 people?
  • Or perhaps you could offer a welcome, a listening ear, and fresh hope for the new clients we receive? (appropriate training and guidance will be provided)
  • Or could you help serve meals and generally keep things tidy?
  • Or perhaps you could help us improve our use of social media?

Complete the website contact form and we will be in contact with you as soon as possible.

Giving clothes, household goods & food

A clothing rack

We are usually in need of good quality warm clothing (particularly men’s), bedding and toiletries.

A bag of Groceries

For those finding it hard to make ends meet, we can provide some grocery items through supplies mainly given to us by the West Somerset Food Cupboard.

We are also working with several local retailers to collect surplus food that would otherwise go to waste.

What we receive is then either used in the meals we provide or offered for the clients to take away.
