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.

Tesco Tokens

The Minehead Hope Centre Trust is one of the three causes that Tesco Minehead customers can vote for between October 2023 and January 2024. Please take a blue token whenever you make a purchase and put it in our section of the collecting box which is on your way out of the store.
If The Hope Centre receives the most tokens, Tesco will award us £1,500 which will nearly cover our operating costs for a month!

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.
