Torch Trust For The Blind Donation Information
Giving by standing order is really helpful, even if it is just for a small amount, as it increases the proportion of income that is predictable. For taxpayers, Gift Aid increases the value of each donation by 28%. We can send forms for both standing order and Gift Aid on request. If you are supporting Torch financially, then prayerfully consider committing to a standing order and to maximising the value of your giving through gift aid.
