Payroll Giving

You can help support our Charity through your place of work by making a regular donation through your payroll. Not only is it a simple way to support us, it's also the most tax effective.

  • Your donation is tax free because it’s taken directly from your salary, which means the cost to you is less than the amount you pledge
  • Payroll Giving is a scheme that allows people paid through PAYE to make donations to any UK registered charity - tax free
  • How does it work? You give a fixed amount from your salary each month. For example, if you donate £10, only £8.00 comes out of your salary and the Inland Revenue pays the rest.

Donate in Memory

Celebrate the life of your loved one by giving a gift to Theodora Children’s Charity. A gift in memory is a way of honouring the life of someone special while making a difference to the children we visit.

Your gift will be a lasting tribute to them and will help us continue to visit thousands of children each year. 

Donate in Celebration

Are you celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding, christening, engagement or any other special occasion? Instead of receiving gifts, why not ask your friends and family to donate instead? You can set up an on-line fundraising page by clicking here and choosing the 'start fundraising' button on the right hand side of the page. 

Whether it's an anniversary, wedding, birthday or any special moments in your life, you can make a lasting difference.

Please set up a fundraising page to encourage people to celebrate with you and to make a difference. If you would like donation envelopes at your special event please contact the team at [email protected]

Leave a gift in your Will

When it comes to writing your Will, your family and loved ones will be your priority, but many people also wish to leave a legacy to a cause they are close to. Leaving a gift to the Theodora Children's Charity, however large or small, will help us continue to visit sick and disabled children, making sure the joy and magic of Giggle Doctor moments last for years to come. 

How your legacy could help:


"I remember when my youngest grandson was terminally ill with neuro blastoma. The Giggle Doctors visited his bed and amused him and broke the tension for us all. God Bless." 


You can find out how your Will can help children by downloading our Legacy Pack.

If you have left a gift to us:

If you have already left a gift to us in your Will, it would be really helpful to get in touch and let us know. It would also give us the opportunity to thank you for your very special gift. We would really appreciate it if you could complete this pledge form. You can email it to: [email protected] or post it to 40 Pentonville Road, London, N1 9HF. We promise that all information will be treated with discretion and confidentiality.

Further information:

If you would like to find out further information about leaving a gift in your Will, why not download our Legacy Pack. It has useful information about legacy giving, as well as highlights on how your gift will help sick and disabled children across the country. 

Amending an Existing Will:

If you already have a Will but would like to amend it to include a gift to the Theodora Children’s Charity, you may need to complete a Codicil form. This can sometimes be easier to do, rather than having a brand new Will created. However, it is important to speak to your Solicitor first to ensure any amendments are valid.
