How to Donate

The South Cleveland Heart Fund (SCHF) relies heavily on the generosity of its supporters to enable the fund to carry out its mission, which is to raise as much money as possible for the Cardiothoracic Unit at James Cook University Hospital.

The Importance of Gift Aid

For every £100 donated by taxpayers, if you gift aid it we receive £125! This emphasises the importance to the Fund of Taxpayers gift aiding their donations. It is better if a gift aid certificate accompanies donations, but also, a simple note that gift aid is to be applied to a donation along with the donor's name, house number and post code will suffice.

Thank you so much for your donations - great or small - every penny counts.
