How to Help Us The Trust relies on fundraising to cover day-to-day running costs, improve facilities and pay for professional treatment  for the sick and injured animals which arrive on our doorstep daily.  There are a number of ways you can help :- Join The Trust One way to help The Trust is to become a member. Your annual membership fee will be a big help. If you live locally  you can, of course, become actively involved in The Trust’s work through fund-raising, helping out at the Swan  House, serving on the committee and in many other ways. So why not join us today?  As a new member of The Trust you will receive a complimentary copy of our 16 page full colour brochure show left.  You will also be sent our regular newsletter “The Cygnet”, keeping you informed of coming events and in touch with  all the latest news from the Swan House. Annual subscription rates start at £6.50 (£3.50 concessions).  For full details download the membership form (Adobe Acrobat format).  Shop Online with EasyFundraising “Easyfundraising” is an easy way to raise money for The Trust. If you already shop online with retailers such as  Amazon, Argos, EBay etc., just sign up for free to raise money while you shop. Follow the link on the left.  Once you’re registered with don’t forget to log on to “Easyfundrasing”  before you go shopping. Then just select the retailer you want  and you shop directly with them as you would normally do, but with The Trust, as your favourite charity, you’ll be raising money for  us as you shop. A percentage of what you spend comes directly to us at no cost to yourself, and when logged on you can see how  much you’ve raised for us.  “Easysearch” is an extension of Easyfundraising. Follow the link here and use the search box as you would any  search engine like  Google etc., but now you’ll raise ½ p for each search. Not much, but how often do you  “Google” something in a year? It all adds up.  Make a Donation  This link takes you to our donation page at Virgin Money Giving, run securely by a not-for-profit arm of Virgin Bank,  where you can make a donation using your debit/credit card or PayPal. You’ll need to register first time, but after that you just log in any time to make an instant donation. Please don’t forget to register  for Gift Aid if you are a UK tax payer, as this automatically increases your donation by about 20%.  If you are doing a charity fundraising event (e.g. running a marathon), the Virgin Money Giving site can also help you to organise and  publicise your efforts with your own web page and pass on the proceeds direct to The Trust. Donate by Text on a Mobile Phone  Just text “SWAN15 £x” replacing “x” with the donation (£1, £2, £5 or £10) e.g. “SWAN15 £5” to 70070.  There is no charge for this service (sponsored by Vodaphone) and your donation comes to us in full.  Donations are deducted from your pay as you go or added to your monthly account.  UK taxpayers can also add Gift Aid - just follow the link in the message you’ll receive (internet enabled mobile required).  Buy from our Amazon Wish List  If you would prefer to make a donation in kind, follow this link to our Amazon wish list where you can buy items  that we need from your own Amazon account and have them automatically delivered direct to our premises.  You can even use EasyFundraising at the same time! See us at Local Events If you live locally, come to see us at our Swan House Open Day or events we attend (e.g. BARK pet show, Spittal Seaside Festival),  where you can have a go on the tombola, or see our range of gifts and clothing for sale. You can also have a chat and find out more  about us. See the News Page to find out about these events. Look out for our Collection Boxes  Look out for our collection boxes in our familiar blue livery and logo. Find them in various public premises such as shops,  tourist facilities etc. in and around Berwick and the Borders. Pop in your odd change. It all adds up.  If you would like to have a collection box on your premises, please get in touch and we will arrange it.  Buy a Trolley Token We have now got a supply of trolley tokens with our logo and contact number printed on. They are very handy to  carry with you and double up as key rings. They cost £2 each with FREE postage and packing.  If you would like to order, please send a cheque payable to BSWT to Pat Goff, Ord Moor, Tweedmouth TD15 2NF  and we will despatch by return.
