As a small local charity we are always looking for ways to raise money to provide support and activities. You can help by:

Just TextGiving

You can give to Forest Pulse by texting KIDS28 and the amount you wish to donate (£1,£2, £5 or £10) to 70070 TheGivingMachine: You can support us by shopping via the Giving Machine website which will cost you nothing but a small donation is made from retailers.

Match Funding

If you are organizing or taking part in an event to raise funds for Forest Pulse please check with your employer to see if they do match funding as this can help raise the end total considerably.

Forest Pulse Clothing

By buying a hoodie, Polo or Tee-Shirt you can not only raise awareness but also raise money for Forest Pulse.

Clothes Recycling

Any old items of clothing you no longer need can be recycled and money raised goes to Forest Pulse.  We collect clothes, shoes, bags and toys, but could these be bagged separately and labelled please. We are no longer able to recycle blankets, sheets, books or bricabrac. Please bring in items to the office or contact the office for further details.

The Bonus Club

Pay £5 a quarter and be in the chance to win between £25 and £100

Collecting boxes:

You may have seen our collecting boxes dotted around various businesses in the Forest of Dean but if you know of somewhere that may have one for us on their counter please let us know.

Penny Boxes:

Quite a few of our members have kindly offered to have small little penny boxes to collect their small change.  Pennies really do make pounds so if you think you can spare some of your coppers call us for a box.

Make a monthly payment

Just a small donation monthly can make a huge difference.  Contact Jean to find out how.

Gift Aid

If you are a regular Tax Payer, adding Gift Aid to your donation can generate an extra 25p for every £1 that is donated.  If you or anyone you know is organising a fund raising event on our behalf please contact us in advance, as we can recommend ways money raised can be Gift Aided.
