Making a donation is an ideal way of supporting LRSN and by using Gift Aid you will increase the value of your donation by 25 pence in every pound.
There are four different ways that you can donate to LRSN:Regular Giving
Regular Giving Scheme - Gift Aided Donations
In October 2013 LRSN launched a Regular Giving Scheme to help provide a regular source of income to the charity enabling us to forward plan and budget our services more reliably. The scheme also provides you as a donor an opportunity to regularise your giving and if you are a tax payer you are able to complete a Gift Aid Declaration which will enable us to recover a further 25% from the 'Tax Man'.
If you would like to join please complete the Bankers Standing Order and Gift Aid Declaration and return them to our PR and Admin Manager, Sophie Dunn at Village Farm, Wootton Road, Elsham, Brigg, North Lincolnshire DN20 0NU.

Help us to help others with Text Giving
Having only just launched our JustGiving text-to-donate number last autumn, we were told that the service was being withdrawn. So… from 31 March 2019 our new number is 70085 and we’ve signed up with Newcastle-based firm, Donr to launch a new text giving service.
70085 is the number to store in your phone to help us raise funds for our work supporting Lincolnshire farming folk. Text giving with LRSN is a simple and straightforward way to help us to raise funds.
Just text LRSN and the amount you would like to donate to 70085. You can donate any amount in whole numbers, between £1 and £20 (inclusive), but if you forget to put an amount in the text, we will receive £10 from you. Within 24 hours you'll receive confirmation by text to let you know the donation has been successful.
Every penny of your donation (including Gift Aid) goes to LRSN. Remember, you will be charged for your text message, please refer to your network operator's standard rates. Many mobile phone operators support text giving but read our Q and A, link below, to check whether yours does.
Once you've sent your text you will receive a reply to confirm that it has been received, and in a separate email, we’ll send you a link to our online Gift Aid form. If you have a smartphone, click on the link to claim Gift Aid. Alternatively, you can copy the link into a web browser on your PC/laptop or tablet and fill the form in there. You can also click here to go straight to the Gift Aid form.
Please don’t use the old number, 70070 to send us donations, as from 31 March it will not work.
We’ve put together a Q and A document which we hope will answer any questions you have on our Text Giving service. Click here to read or download it.
Thank you to everyone for your kind donations and for raising funds for LRSN. Without the help and support of both individuals and businesses, LRSN would not be able to provide our unique, confidential, personal and professional service to people facing tough times in Lincolnshire.
