Donate by Cash or Cheque
For cheque donations, please make these payable to Headway East Northants and send to Headway East Northants, 61 High Street, Irthlingborough, Northants, NN9 5PU. We also accept cash donations. NB: Please do not send cash in the post.
We are now registered with both Amazon Smile and ‘Give as you Live’. This means that when you shop online via Amazon and the many thousands of participating retailers, choosing us as your selected charity will enable us to receive donations from your purchases – and as those donations are covered by Amazon and the Give as you Live groups, they won’t cost you a penny.
All you need to do is select Headway East Northants as your chosen charity to donate to. Amazon Smile will then donate 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible goods to us, and Give as you Live will also donate a percentage of the total purchase price. It’s a simple and free way of donating to us here each time you shop online with a participating retailer.
