You have got to this page, and you want to donate some money to Edridge, but do you do it. Previously, if you clicked on the donation links on every page of this website you were taken to the website, but now we are using this page to have one place where you can see all the options.

There are four ways to donate to Edridge, and we set them out below.


With you can make a single donation, or set up a regular Direct Debit to your Bank account or Credit Card, and you can also turn your donation into Gift Aid once you have set up the payment.
