Thank you for choosing to donate to the lowdown

Your support is so very important to us. A child or young adult in Northamptonshire can experience a devastating personal crisis at any time. the lowdown’s team of dedicated volunteers is here to ensure they don’t face this crisis alone, but to do this we need to raise around £1000 a week from donors like you.

How do I donate?

If you already have a PayPal or JustGiving account, then simply log in and make a donation to the lowdown. If you don’t have an account set up, you will still be able to pay with either your Credit or Debit card. You can also create a Standing Order and give a regular monthly donation if you wish!

Are you a UK tax payer?

If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by almost a third under the Gift Aid scheme – at no extra cost to you. If you would like to do this for your online donation please use the JustGiving option & tick the box when asked to join the Gift Aid scheme (PayPal does not support this).

to recognise our 30+ years of service!

£30 is £1 for every year the lowdown has been helping children and young adults in the Northampton area.

Your donation today will help us to make a difference to the lives of thousands more young people over the next 30 years too.
