The Clock always welcome donations of food, good quality clothes or furniture to help support local under privileged families. Cash donations are especially useful and very welcome.
(We would advise that if you have household items to donate that you telephone The Clock first so that we can check our available storage at the time as we have limited space)
One of the big focuses of our work from the previous 12 months was on young people struggling with financial hardship, and that has only increased year on year. We have helped 35 members with profound money issues, and made a positive significant impact. An example of what this may entail might be a member of the community coming in who is living independently declaring that he/she is unable to pay their rent. Our first priority is to make sure that they have a roof over their head and then we would look at what options are available so that theycan live affordably and sustainably.
Our work extends into providing services for adults and families, providing food and clothing. we can also assist by providing funiture.
A number of organisations collect money to assist with the work of The Clock. Practice, to date, has generally been for the organisation to count the contributions and send a cheque for the amount to The Clock.
Recent changes to gift aid regulations within HMRC means that organisations can reclaim tax on cash donations, but in order to do so The Clock needs to receive the donations in cash rather than by cheque.
Accordingly, wherever possible, when you make such collections could you let The Clock have the cash as the reclaimed tax will increase the sum by 25%.
