If you’ve raised money online
If you’ve raised funds by using an online fundraising site like BT MyDonate, JustGiving or Guess2Give then just sit back and relax! The money will come to Brook automatically and quickly along with any Gift Aid due. Easy.
If you’ve raised cash
There are different ways that you can pay this to us, so just choose whichever method works best for you!
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how much you’ve raised so we know to expect it and so we can say thank you!
Depending on how you’ve raised the funds, some methods of payment will allow us to claim Gift Aid so please read our Gift Aid guidance first so we can make sure the funds you raise go as far as possible. And remember to send us copies of all completed sponsorship forms or Gift Aid declarations either by email or post.
Bank transfer: You can use online or telephone banking to transfer the money into the Brook account:
Lloyds Bank PLC
Sort code: 30-94-66
Account number: 01019185
Account name: Brook Young People
Cheque: Please make your cheque payable to "Brook Young People", and write your name and contact details on the back. Please send it to:
Brook Finance, 81 London Road, Liverpool, L3 8JA
Cash at bank: You can pay cash you’ve collected directly into Brook’s account at any branch of Lloyds Bank. Just complete a paying in slip with Brook’s bank details above.
Brook can claim Gift Aid on donations made by UK taxpayers who give their permission.
If you are fundraising for Brook the following information will help you make sure that the funds you raise are eligible for Gift Aid.
If you’re collecting sponsorship using one of our sponsorship forms, your supporters will have the opportunity to tick the Gift Aid box on the form. Just send us the sponsorship forms when you send us the funds you’ve raised and we’ll take care of the rest.
Small cash donations
If you’re collecting cash where each individual donation is £20 or less, such as through a bucket shake or donation tins, then Brook may be able to claim Gift Aid through the Small Donations Scheme.
You’ll need to pay the cash you raise directly into Brook’s bank account for it to be eligible. This is because if you collect the money in and then make a donation from your account you’re donating on behalf of someone else and that isn’t eligible for Gift Aid.
Please see ‘cash at bank’ (above) for details of how to pay the cash in. So that we can claim the Gift Aid please email us at email@example.com to tell us:
Larger cash donations
If you have a generous friend or family member who would like to donate more than £20 (and you’re not using a sponsorship form or collecting online) you can ask them to fill in one of our Gift Aid declarations. You will need to pay the cash directly into our bank account as above for it to be eligible and send us the declaration by email or post. Or alternatively they could give you a cheque made payable to Brook Young People for you to send to us.

Some donations don’t meet HMRC rules for Gift Aid. These are:
