Donate Money

You can donate online to support the NHS teams here in North Wales who are working day and night amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your donations will help fund items that go over and above what the NHS can provide, for example iPads for patients in hospital who can no longer receive visitors, so they can keep in contact with family, and additional emotional support for frontline NHS staff.


To donate via our website, just visit the 🔗COVID-19 Response Fund page.

You may choose to donate to the COVID-19 Response Fund, which will support Intensive Care Units, Field Hospitals, and other wards affected by the pandemic. You may also choose to donate to a specific ward or department - just tick "A specific ward or department" when asked "Where would you like your donation to go?".

Remember to leave a message of support for our NHS staff.


There is a dedicated Appeal on JustGiving for the COVID-19 response in North Wales.

  • 🔗Go here to make a donation to the Appeal.
  • 🔗Go here to set up a fundraising page for an event or activity you are planning to raise money for the Appeal.

Please remember to always use the 🔗Official Awyr Las JustGiving Page, not a "Crowdfunding" page.

There are 3 main benefits to using the Awyr Las JustGiving account:

  1. Gift Aid, AKA 25% EXTRA on top of every eligible donation!

  2. The biggest benefit is the option for your donors to claim Gift Aid on top of their donation, which means the charity can claim an extra 25% from HMRC at no extra cost to the donor. Yes, that means if you give £10, with Gift Aid added the charity gets £12.50.

  3. The money gets paid straight to the charity and it's quicker!

  4. When you use a Crowdfunding page, the money goes into your personal bank account, then you have to transfer it to the charity. You also have to wait 14 days from launching your page to request a withdrawal. JustGiving automatically pays its member charities every week, so through the Awyr Las page your donations will get to where they need to be quicker.

  5. Lower processing fees!

  6. JustGiving no longer charges a platform fee, but donations are still subject to card processing fees. The card processing fees on the charity pages are only 1.9% + 20p compared to 2.9% + 25p on the Crowdfunding pages. Every penny counts!


You can give a single gift of £5 via your mobile phone.

Just text Awyr Las C19 to 70500 to donate £5 instantly.

Awyr Las will receive 100% of the donation.

To send a text donation you must be 16 years old or over and you must obtain permission from the bill payer before sending a text message.

Please note that you can donate from a UK mobile only. You cannot donate using this service from a Channel Islands, Isle of Man or other non-UK mobile. If you donate using this service from a UK mobile outside England, Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, you may incur additional network charges.

Texts will incur the cost of your donation plus a charge at your standard network message rate; please ask bill payer’s permission first.

There is no limit on the number of times you may make a donation via text but there is a daily limit of £30 on text donations. You will not be able to donate more by text from the same number on the same day, but you may still incur your standard network message charge if you try.


Facebook

You can make a single donation on Facebook by pressing the "Donate" button on the 🔗Awyr Las Facebook Page.

Important: Awyr Las will automatically receive the donations you make or collect on Facebook, but we may not know where you wish to send them (if you have a preference). This is because of privacy settings. To ensure your Facebook donation is allocated to the right ward, department or appeal, please drop us a line using the 🔗 Facebook inbox once you have made your donation.

You can also:

  • Set up your own 🔗Facebook Fundraiser

  • Add a donate button to your post - to do this on mobile, open Facebook, tap "What's on your mind?", then scroll down to the "Support charity" option. Tap this, then search for "Awyr Las". Tap the charity's name when it appears. Write your post and then publish it. A donate button will now be added to your post for your friends to use.

  • Fundraise using live video - to do this on mobile, open Facebook, tap "What's on your mind?", then scroll down to the "Go Live" option. Tap this. You then have two options - if you've already creaded a Facebook Fundraiser, or if you are helping someone else to raise money using a Facebook Fundraiser, you can find the page by typing their name in the "Search for a fundraiser to support" search bar. Tap the fundraiser's name when it appears. Then tap "Start Live Video" If you just want to collect donations for the charity without using a Facebook Fundraiser, tap "Raise Money for a Charity". Then, on the next scree, type "Awyr Las" in the search bar that says "Search for a non-profit to support". Tap the charity's name when it appears. Then tap "Start Live Video".

    Instagram

    You can help Awyr Las by adding a donation sticker to your Instagram Story.

    To do this on mobile, open Instagram, then tap your profile picture to open your Story. Choose what you want to share, then tap the sticker to bring up the menu. Tap "Donation". Search for "Awyr Las" then tap the charity when it appears. Edit the text on the donation sticker and change the colour if you wish. Tap "Done". You can now move and resize the sticker to fit on your Story. When you're finished, tap "Send to" then "Share".
