Many of the special things we do are not paid for by local councils. As a result they would not possible without the generous help of our supporters and donors.

How your gifts could support WESC Foundation

The easiest way to fundraise for WESC Foundation is to Make a donation. A regular payment of just £10 a month could help provide a special device for a child who has difficulty speaking. On the other hand a single gift could help pay for a mobility cane, or contribute towards the cost of an adapted car or minibus.

If a loved-one has passed away then you might want to donate in memory of them. An in-memoriam donation is an incredibly thoughtful gift, made to honour the memory of someone you loved very much.

Alternatively a Gift in your Will is a very generous way to support children and young people with little or no sight. It also comes at no cost to you during your lifetime. It’s the best way to make sure that  your wishes are carried out after you’re gone. Supporters who leave a legacy  make an invaluable contribution to the future of our charity.

Other ways to support us

You can still support us even if you can’t make a donation yourself. Why not think about taking on a challenge event like the Three Peaks Challenge?
