Do you still accept a cheque?

Caritas Salford Finance Team (and marked with the specific campaign or cause, where applicable) Cathedral Centre,  3 Ford Street,  Salford  M3 6DP.

Are you taking donations of items at the moment?
We do not have a great deal of storage, so we really appreciate it if you check first with us before bringing anything to our centres.  For an up-to-date list of items required, please email or call 0161 817 2285.

How do I go about Gift Aiding my donation when I send a cheque or cash?

Gift Aid means that for every pound you donate, Caritas Salford will receive an extra 25p from HM Revenue & Customs, as all charities can reclaim tax on gifts.  So, at no extra cost to you, your donation can go further.  For example, a gift of £10 can be turned into £12.50 and it won’t cost you another penny.  To allow us to claim Gift Aid please download, complete and return the following form with your cheque.  Gift Aid Form
