WORKPLACE GIVING: Your employer may have Workplace Giving in place, allowing you to make regular donations directly from your payroll, with your employer matching your donation, often up to 100% (i.e. in effect doubling your donation). Please check with your employer to see if they offer this option (and if they don't, please suggest that they enter a workplace giving programme such as benevity or good2give). Don't be shy to encourage your co-workers to enroll into the Workplace Giving programme at the same time you do - every donation is doubled.
