Payroll Giving Scheme has exceeded £1million!

Between January 2005 and the end of January 2019, the total figure donated by University staff via our Payroll Giving Scheme reached £1million!

Donations made in this way go to many amazing causes chosen by our staff, with the full tax relief going to the charities concerned, boosting the amount and the impact of the money. Giving this way helps charities receive regular financial support and helps smaller charities in particular, as many do not have the resource to claim back Gift Aid.

The top five charities being supported by University staff are Oxfam, Shelter, Save the Children, CRUK and NSPCC, but there are many small local and international charities benefitting from the kindness and generosity of our staff too.

Karen Heaton, Director of Human Resources said: “This is a worthwhile and successful initiative as shown by the generous giving of our staff to deserved causes. A fantastic achievement!“
