Please consider supporting Alopecia UK during Lent

27th February 2017

We know many people in the UK give something up for the period of Lent, starting this Wednesday (1st March). 

For many it involves giving up chocolate or wine or something equally as testing for forty days and forty nights. 

In addition, we were hoping some of you might support Alopecia UK during Lent. We are wanting you to put your loose change to good use! 

The Challenge

For the forty days of Lent give a coin to Alopecia UK. Put it in a jar or pot and after Easter pay the proceeds into your bank and make a payment to Alopecia UK. 

Any collected monies should be paid to: 

Bank: CAF Bank

Account Name: Alopecia UK

Account Number: 00024028

Sort Code: 40-52-40

If you would like to receive a written acknowledgement of your donation, please drop our Fundraising Manager, Amy, an email to let her know the funds you have transferred across: 

No amount is too small and you don't have to put aside the same value coin each day. But just think: 

5p a day for 40 days = 2.00
10p a day for 40 days = 4.00
20p a day for 40 days = 8.00
50p a day for 40 days = 20.00
1 a day for 40 guessed it = 40.00

These amounts might not seem like they'd make a big difference to Alopecia UK but believe us, they do!

Perhaps if you are giving up chocolate, you could put 50p in the jar every day to represent the cost of a chocolate bar.

At Alopecia UK, we value every single donation that comes into the charity and it really does help us to continue the work we do to improve the lives of those affected by all types of alopecia. 

Thanks for your support.
