Help us transform the lives of children

Whether you are an individual, group or business who wants to make a difference and raise money for charity, there are lots of ways to get involved.

Regular Giving makes the biggest difference

If just 900 people gave us £20 a month we would cover all our support costs. This would enable us to build a sustainable institution of protection and support for children in South Africa. An ongoing commitment means that we can plan ahead with our partners, cover the support they provide, invest in staff training and work towards the national standards. This helps them access statutory funding to make their work sustainable without our support in the long term.   

£15 is what you might spend each month on.... milk... a daily newspaper subscription... OR you could transform the life of a child.   

Fundraising Activities

Maybe you want to run a marathon? Jump out of an airplane? Or, maybe a coffee morning is more your style?!

If you have an idea for how you might help raise funds to support our work let us know. When it comes to fundraising there is no such thing as a bad idea! We would be very happy to talk with you about what you have in mind and see what we can do to  help. Drop us a line at or call us on 020 8133 9369

Donate Now

We guarantee you that your gift will make a real difference. We're a small charity that focuses on spending donations where it really counts:

  • £15 will provide support, counselling and a meal a day for one child for a month.
  • £150 pays for one Child Care Advocate to provide direct support to 10 children for one month.

Donate now

You can also use your mobile phone to make a donation. Simply text BST15 to 70085 to give £15 - the cost of supporting one child for a month. This will cost you your normal text fee plus the cost of your donation. If you wish to give a different amount simply insert your preferred figure after BST in your text. 

Leave a gift in your will

We know that it is a sensitive matter, but a legacy is a donation that almost everyone can make. Leaving a legacy to the Bishop Simeon Trust or making a tribute in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way of helping us to support some of the most vulnerable children in South Africa. Contact us if you want to talk through the options.

Payroll Giving

Fancy an easy life? Payroll giving is a tax-efficient and easy way to give a regular gift to Bishop Simeon Trust.  Your donation is taken from your salary before tax is deducted, meaning it costs you less to give more.  For example, a £10 donation will cost you just £8, or even less if you are a higher rate taxpayer.  You can give as much or as little as you would like and you can change this amount at any time.

Getting started : Ask your organisation's HR/Payroll Department if they run a payroll giving scheme.  If they do, simply complete our Payroll Giving Authorisation form and return it to them, and they will do the rest.  If they don't run a scheme, ask them to contact us to find out how easy it is to set one up.
