If you have been helped - here’s how you can help us
We deal with thousands of enquiries every year from patients suffering from shingles or cold sores and even more from those newly diagnosed with genital herpes. We are a small charity: our income comes mainly from the people we help, plus a small grant from the Department of Health. We could help more people if we had a larger income. This is where you can help. Any donation, large or small, will be put to good use.
You can give on-line and your credit/debit card statement will read "SPHERE".
To give by phone, please call us between 10.00am and 6.00pm (UK time), Monday to Friday on (0)20 7607 9661 and make a donation using Mastercard, VISA or Switch/Maestro. We also accept CAF charity cheques.
To give by post, cheques should be made payable to ‘HVA’ and sent to us at 41 North Road, London N7 9DP.
Help us be there in the future with regular gift by making a standing order.
To leave a legacy, please call us on (0)20 7607 9661 for details of how this can be managed discreetly.
If you are a UK income tax payer, with Gift Aid we can claim back the tax you have paid on the money which gives us £25 on every £100 donated. You just have to state that you pay income tax - or tick the box on the form. It costs you nothing. If you are a higher rate tax payer you can claim back some extra (on top of our 25%) from the taxman yourself.
Your donation can really make a difference. If we have helped you, or a friend or relative, please help us to carry on the good work.
Your donations are vital in helping us to...
Please give today.
As you can imagine, it is harder to get donations for a herpes charity than almost any other cause. None of the people we help wants to be involved in jumble sales, raffle tickets, sponsored activities - or any of the usual ways charities fund-raise.
