Support Us

The Charity has been in existence for 130 years and – with your support – we hope to continue for another 130 years.

We could always do more but our resources are limited. There are, however, many ways you can help:


We welcome donations from individuals and organisations. The donate button at the top of this page enables you to make a donation via our partner, the PayPal Giving Fund. PayPal delivers 100% of your donation and eligible Gift Aid to The Parochial Charities. After you donate, you will get a donation receipt by email – with a link enabling you to add the Gift Aid.


We are also raising funds by partnering with the Co-op in the village. If you are a card holder, please go to membership.coop.co.uk/causes/ and nominate Great Shelford Parochial Charities as your local cause. Whenever you buy Co-op products and services, not only will you get the usual 2p back for every £1 spent, but an additional 2p will accrue to the Charity. What’s not to like?
