Financial donations are vital for our work to support people affected by homelessness. We help vulnerable members of the community across Kingston, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth. We strive to find secure accommodation for people who are sleeping rough and work together towards a positive future.

No matter how big or small, we really appreciate every single donation that you can give.

*Texts cost the donation amount plus one standard rate message and you’ll be opting in to hear more about our work and fundraising via telephone and SMS. If you’d like to give £3 but do not wish to receive marketing communications, text SPEARNOINFO 3 to 70450.

If you are working for a company that already has a Payroll Giving scheme set up, you can speak to your payroll department to request giving a regular donation to SPEAR tax free, i.e. the donation is taken out of your salary before you are taxed.

This means the donation costs you less than it would after you are taxed. If your company doesn’t have a Payroll Giving scheme set up then please contact SPEAR fundraising and we can discuss with your company the process of setting one up for employees.

If you are a company wishing to set up a Payroll Giving scheme for your employees, there is also more information on approved Payroll Giving companies from the government here.
