Please consider how YOU can donate to the work of the Willow Tree Centre.
If you would like someone to contact you regarding setting up a standing order, volunteering with us, or getting more information about the work we do please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
We believe we offer a crucial service to women and their partners and that it is important that no-one is turned away from accessing our services because of cost. Our service is free.
However in the current climate charities like ours are vulnerable,
As a small, local charity we are completely reliant on generous donations, fundraising and grants.
With your donations we can:
• Keep our service free to those who need our support.
• Fund our telephone helpline and website to be easily accessible to those in need.
• Advertise our free services so anyone knows where to look for help.
• Continue to expand our services.
We are so grateful to all those who donate, often anonymously. Your support is greatly appreciated
Many women, their partners and families who have come to us have wanted to give something back to help others in a similar situation.
Two of our recent clients ran their first half-marathon in support of the Centre.
They said "We were left devastated by the loss of our daughter, Olive. We couldn't have imagined that we would be running a half marathon in her memory but here we are. We have been lucky enough not to need help from charities until now but the support that we have received from The Willow Tree Centre over the past 3 months has been invaluable in helping us move through this sad time. We are simply asking that you donate anything you may have given as a gift to Olive, no matter how small, as a sign of our gratitude to the volunteers at Willow Tree as they continue to help us and others in times of need."
