The Starlight Trust is an animal welfare and rescue organisation based in Surrey

As a small charity run by two people and focusing on the less glamorous species we find we have very little time for fundraising and little success in attracting sponsorship. There aren’t too many grant making bodies who will support an organisation campaigning for better treatment of ‘vermin’! But our costs are considerable as we aim to work to a high standard. We provide excellent care for our animals – we feed good quality food, provide good sized cages and plenty of enrichment, and travel 25 miles to see a specialist vet to ensure our animals receive the best possible veterinary care. Our advice websites provide help for hundreds of thousands of people and animals each year and we are receiving an increasing number of calls to our helpline. Our dream would be to be able to fund a 24/7 helpline so someone finding a wildlife casualty will ALWAYS be able to talk to someone for advice. We know we’re not alone in our passionate belief that ALL animals deserve fair treatment no matter what their size or species so we rely entirely on the generosity of those who share our views to keep going.

The simplest way to donate is via DonorBox. This service does make a small charge but it saves us considerable admin time and collects your information for gift aid claims which are worth 25p for every £1 you donate! It also gives you the option to add a little extra to cover those charges if you choose 🙂

If you prefer to avoid the fees, especially if you’ve already filled out a gift aid form, you can donate for free by

– bank transfer or standing order using these details – Account No: 65718081, Sort Code: 089299. Please use your name as the reference.

– cheque made payable to The Starlight Trust. Click here for our postal address.

If you donate other than via Donorbox and haven’t already done so we would be very grateful if you would complete a gift aid declaration form allowing us to claim the tax on your donation. This is worth an extra 25p for every pound you donate at no cost to you so is extremely valuable.

You can also find a list of things we need on our Amazon wishlist. Don’t forget to make the purchase through Easyfundraising to also raise funds with your purchase at no cost to you 🙂
