The simplest way to support Bluecoat is to donate. Any amount can make a huge difference, everything we do is made possible with your support.

Other ways to give

Donate in person

During your next visit to Bluecoat please donate what you can into our donation boxes - we are grateful for every penny received. Or, if you’re short of change, you can use one of our contactless donation points. If you have difficulty locating a donations box, please ask one of our staff who will be happy to help.

Donate when you buy a ticket

The next time you book a ticket online or at Bluecoat for an event or activity, you can add a donation to your order. Our tickets are always free or low cost to help ensure anyone from any background can attend. If you value our events and can afford to make a donation then please do - it helps us to continue to make sure that cost is not a barrier for others.

Give As You Earn

Payroll Giving is a flexible scheme which allows anyone who receives their pay through payroll to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.

Payroll Giving donations are deducted before tax so for every £1.00 that you give it will only cost you 80p, and if you're a higher rate tax payer it will only cost you 60p.

Regular support is vital to Bluecoat. As a reliable income stream, it means we can budget and plan for the future.

Find out if your employer offers Payroll Giving through the Payroll Giving in Action website
