Why donate?

The People’s Kitchen is run by a dedicated team of volunteers so all money raised actually goes to helping the people in need without any being spent and staff salaries or fees.

We are always grateful for donations, both great and small, and never is it needed more than at this time of year. This Winter we are both grateful of any cash donation or alternatively, we are also in need of nearly new sleeping bags and rucksacks to supply to our Friends. 


With no staff costs, 82% of donations go directly where it is needed most: supporting our Friends.

Via PayPal

Donating via PayPal is quick and easy – you don’t even need a Paypal Account, just a valid email address.

We now have our own JustGiving page which provides you with more ways to give your support: either by fundraising or by making a one-off or regular donation.

Donate with JustGiving

Regular Donations

Regular support to The People’s Kitchen is the best way of ensuring that we can continue our vital services and plan for the future. You can do this by setting up a standing order with your bank using our Standing order form or you could consider making a tax free donation through your work: Payroll giving form

Gift Aid

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, we get an extra 28p from the Inland Revenue. This means that £10 from you can be turned into £12.80 for us at no cost to you.

(More information about Gift Aid is available on the HMRC website and on the donation forms)

Send a cheque

The easiest way to make a donation is simply to send a cheque payable to The People’s Kitchen Ltd and send it back to us or drop it into the Alison Centre. Please download and complete either an Individual donation form or a Group Donation form and send it with your cheque.

Leaving a Legacy

Many people find it comforting to know that they can continue helping others after their death. Your bequest to The People’s Kitchen in your will would be an act of caring by which you would be remembered for years to come. It may also be that you can reduce the inheritance tax your beneficiaries may have to pay by making a legacy to charity.

Tons of good quality clothing are issued every year to ensure that no one freezes on the streets during winter.

At the moment our clothing store is full and we will not be accepting clothes until 3rd April. A reminder also that we do not need hats, scarves, duvets, pillows or house clearances. However we are short of men’s jeans size 30 to 34 (no larger) and tracksuit bottoms.
