Make a donation

If you’re not able to organise or take part in an event, making a donation is a really simple and effective way to support us. Any gift, no matter how large or small, will play an important part in helping families affected by retinoblastoma. It’s quick and easy to donate and you can do so online, by text, bank transfer or post. Please have a look at our how to donate page to find out more.

Giveacar

Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar! Giveacar raises money for CHECT by scrapping and selling old cars. They provide a nationwide service which:

• Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home for FREE.
• Recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction (depending on its age and condition).

Scrap donations raise about £35 for us (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more. To arrange the donation of a car, visit www.giveacar.co.uk or call 020 7736 4242, quoting the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust as your preferred charity.
