Join or Donate

By becoming a Friend, you will be making a valuable financial contribution, as well as becoming a part of a growing community of individuals and families who deeply care about the future of Sun Rising.

In addition to the other events that take place at Sun Rising, you'll be invited to attend our AGM.  At this annual September gathering, you'll hear about plans and developments within the charity and for Sun Rising as a whole, and have an opportunity to contribute your own ideas and views.

How to Subscribe

Annual subscription to the Friends is £10.

Please download, print and return the subscription form here, or get in touch and we can send you the form.

As members sometimes wish to make an additional donation when they subscribe, we have left the total amount blank for you to fill in. In addition to the subscription of £10, please include £1 to cover the fees Paypal charges us for the transaction.

Donate

There are many ways that families donate money to the Friends:

  • a one off donation by cash, cheque or direct bank transfer - let us know and we can tell you how
  • an annual or monthly direct debit, over and above the £10 annual subscription
  • a collection made at the funeral of a loved one, often in lieu of flowers
  • instructions that a collection should be made at your own funeral
  • a legacy or gift left in your Will.

You can also donate online here using Paypal with a debit or credit card (you don't need to join Paypal to do so) - just click Donate below.

We are always enormously grateful for all that is given to the Friends, each penny adding to the long-term security of the site as a burial ground and a nature reserve.

GIFT AID If you are a UK taxpayer, we would ask you please to take the time to fill out one of our Gift Aid forms and return it to us at the Friends office. As a registered charity, that will allow us to add a full 25p to every £1 you donate. The form, which is combined with the Joining form, can be downloaded here : Gift Aid It.
