Paying your money in

Thank you so much for fundraising for Brook! When you’ve finished all your fantastic fundraising, you just need to send the money to us, so we can put it to good use.

If you’ve raised money online

If you’ve raised funds by using an online fundraising site like  BT MyDonateJustGiving 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  supportbrook@brook.org.uk 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.

Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a UK government scheme which means that for every £1 that is donated Brook can claim an extra 25p from the tax that the donor has already paid, helping each donation go further. This means that a donation of £10 can turn into £12.50 at no extra cost!

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.

Online fundraising

If you’re using an online fundraising site such as  BT MyDonate or JustGiving then Gift Aid will be taken care of automatically, so there’s nothing you need to do.


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  supportbrook@brook.org.uk to tell us:

  • the total cash donations collected
  • the date of the collection
  • the date it was paid into our bank account.

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.

Donations ineligible for Gift Aid

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

  • Donations made by anyone who is not a UK taxpayer
  • Donations made on behalf of someone else or a group of people
  • Donations made in return for something else – e.g. for a raffle ticket, or to attend an event
  • Donations made on behalf of a company
