It's easy to donate to the Edinburgh and Lothian Prostate Support Group. Many friends and supporters run special money-raising events to support the work of our group. In the past we have used Virgin Money to facilitate this. However (as of late October 2021) due to the imminent withdrawal of Virgin Money Giving as a charity donations platform the Committee is seeking alternative providers to facilitate this. We will update this page in due course.
Gift Aid Please note that if you are a UK tax-payer, charities can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give – this is known as Gift Aid and although it does not cost you any extra, it brings in more funds to the charity (including ELPCSG). Donating can provide an easy way for you to make a Gift Aid declaration for the charity to claim. A Gift Aid declaration must be made for each charity you want to donate to.
Donations to the volunteer-run group are used to meet our goals of supporting men and their partners, families and carers in the Edinburgh and Lothian area to deal with a prostate cancer diagnosis. We do this with our "buddy" programme which operates by phone, email or meetings, and we run regular group meetings in Edinburgh and Livingston to which speakers are invited and men and their families can receive the support that is so important at these difficult times. We also act as a strong lobby group for awareness and treatment issues and have good media links, though our website, Facebook pages.
