Open Door receives no central funding. We run entirely on donations. We are grateful for all donations, big or small, one-off or regular.
There are many easy ways to donate:
- Make a bank transfer (or set up a standing order) to Cheltenham Open Door, sort code 40 52 40, account 00002620. Our account is with “CAF Bank” (Charities Aid Foundation). As they are not with the Bank Verification Scheme you may get an alert saying “unable to check bank details”. Please just double check you have typed our bank details correctly, then confirm.
