Send a cheque

Sponsored events

Frequently people ask us about doing sponsored events. Torch’s position is that we do not engage directly in fundraising or sponsored activities. This approach stems from our roots as a faith-based ministry in which we have always openly shared our needs but have not sent out letters asking for money or organised fundraising events

However, we appreciate that there are many people who are keen to help Torch in any way they can, which for them may incorporate something they enjoy doing such as walking, running, cycling, or whatever.

If this is you, we are happy for you to do a sponsored event to raise funds for Torch providing you make it clear to everyone that this is something you have chosen to do independently and that it is not something that Torch has arranged. Please use any of the payment methods mentioned above to send the money that you have raised to Torch.

Use Gift Aid to boost your gifts at no cost to yourself

UK taxpayers can increase the value of donations by 25% by making a Gift Aid declaration. Please complete the online declaration if donating via direct debit or your bank, or print off a single donation Gift Aid Declaration or a multiple donation Gift Aid Declaration, and post the completed form to Torch House.

Alternatively, call +44 (0)1858 438260 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to request a blank Gift Aid declaration.

Give specifically

Please let us know if you would like to give towards a specific project in which Torch is engaged, such as Torch Malawi, Sight Loss Friendly Church or our Holiday & Retreat Centre. For large donations we restrict the use of these funds so that they can only be used for the purpose that you specify. However, Torch does reserve the option to apply up to ten per cent of such restricted funds towards the costs of organising and administering these projects.
