Ways to Give 

Any donation you are able to give to Shine, could make a big difference. 

Many of our services, supporting more than 12,500 members across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, are entirely funded by the generosity of the general public which is why every donation, whether big or small, has the capacity for profound impact.

Make a Monthly Donation

By choosing to give a monthly donation of any amount, you help Shine to plan ahead, making long-term improvements for our members.

A regular gift allows us to plan for the future, because we know, day in day out, we have regular donations we can rely upon.

Give in Celebration

Whatever event you are celebrating, be it a Birthday, Christening, Wedding, Civil Partnership, Anniversary or any other event, asking for donations to be made to Shine instead of receiving presents is a thoughtful and generous way to celebrate.

Give in Loving Memory 

Losing a loved one is never easy, but giving to charity can be a positive outlet for grief - especially if it's a cause close to your loved one's heart.

Making a donation in memory of your loved one, arranging a funeral collection, or creating an ever-lasting tribute through one of our personalised Shine Stars, are touching, practical and very special ways of remembering someone’s life which you may find comforting at a time of loss.

Leave a Legacy 

A gift in your Will would help us to be here for future generations affected by Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus.

A huge amount of what we do is funded by these extra-special gifts. Without them, many more children, young people and adults with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus would have no one to support them, no one to speak up for them and no one to fight their cause.
