Ways to Give

There are many ways to give to the library. We’d love it if you could consider giving regularly. Small donations of even £2 or £3 per month are helpful as they make it easier to predict our income and plan for the future. Gift Aid is also immensely useful – if you gift aid your donation, it increases its value by 25%, so £10 donated by you is topped up to £12.50 by the government.

Give Via CAF Bank

CAF Bank is our preferred online giving platform.

The form gives you the option to give once or to give regularly. Regular small donations are particularly hepful as they allow us to plan better and give us a reliable form of income to pay the bills (which are also unfortunately very reliable!)

Brent Community Lottery

Brent Community Lottery is an exciting weekly lottery that raises money for good causes in Brent. All good causes supported by the lottery will benefit Brent and its residents.

Play the lottery, support Brent – it’s that simple!

Tickets for the lottery cost just £1 per week, with a top prize of £25,000!

A weekly draw takes place every Saturday night. Match all 6 numbers and you win the JACKPOT!

From every £1 ticket you buy, 60p will go to the ibrary.

Give While You Shop Online

Give while you shop – at no cost to you! Everyone’s shopping online at the moment. Why not help the library while doing so? It will cost you nothing, and will help us enormously.

Easy Fundraising

Donate Books

The book cupboard is brimming at the moment, but it’s always worth asking Sonja if she has any space for more stock. She can be contacted on books@cricklewoodlibrary.org.uk.

But PLEASE, don’t leave books outside the library without asking. They get spoiled and have to be destroyed.

Support Events

Before the COVID-19 crisis, we were all set to take part in the Blenheim Triathlon and Make Music Day. There will be more events in future in support of the library. If you have an idea for a fundraiser, and would like to talk it through with us, please email on info@cricklewoodlibrary.org.uk. We’re always happy to hear.

Give By Cheque

If online donations are not for you, we are also happy to accept cheques or cash!

If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can take part in the Gift Aid scheme where the government tops up your donation by 25% at no cost to you.

Please complete a Gift Aid Donation form, and return it, along with your cheque, made payable to Friends of Cricklewood Library, to 152 Olive Road, London NW2 6UY.

Payroll Giving

Many of the UK’s larger employers will support payroll giving, where your donation comes to us direct from your salary every month. In many cases, employers will top up your donations with their own money. See the government’s website for more details. The benefit to you is that you you don’t pay tax on it. Win-win!
