How to send Donations

Our charity can only run with your help. We ship out our booklets all over the UK to people for free and we can only continue to do this with donations.

Even if you can only donate £1, it does add up and it will make a difference. We even have some long-term members who have set-up monthly repeating donations with Just Giving to help.
If your donation is the result of an event you have been part of like a bake sale, coffee morning or something else, please let us know & if you have taken any photos, please send them over to us as we would love to see.

If the donation is due to a bereavement, please let us know the name and address of each of the people who have supplied a cheque so that we can write to and thank them individually.


Just Giving – This can be a very quick and easy way to send us a donation. If you are a UK resident you can also claim Gift Aid which gives us an extra 25%. To go direct to our donation page, click here. We sadly won’t get a notification if you use Just Giving, so please do email us on letting us know how much you donated and when as we always like to send our thanks.


Bank Transfer – Please email us on letting us know you would like to do a bank transfer. We will then give you the details for our donations account.



Cheque – If you don’t want to use the internet,  you can send us a cheque in the post. Please make it payable to ‘Alpha-1 Awareness UK‘ and let us know your full postal address so that we can send you a letter back confirming receipt and thanking you (also can be helpful if there is an issue with the cheque). You can then send it to the below address:

Alpha-1 Awareness UK
PO Box 8294
DE45 9BF



We can also take donations via PayPal, but only use this as a last resort as they take a cut of the money as a charge for processing it, so we won’t get all of your donation.

If you have any questions about any of the different ways you can send us a donation, please get in touch with us by using our Contact Us page or sending an email to
