We rely on your support

The Batemans Trust is a small charity relying on support from donors like you. The charity is managed by voluntary trustees in the UK and employs teachers, carers and a project director in India. We ensure that nearly all of your donation goes directly to supporting the children. With your support we can help children to help themselves and change their lives forever.

The Batemans Trust has pages at Just Giving and with The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF).  You can give online to The Batemans Trust straightaway using an ordinary credit card or, if you have one, you can use your CAF card at the Charities Aid site.

Leave a gift in your will

A gift in your will can be a very effective way to support the children and young people in Chennai. You can rest assured the charity will not have to pay any inheritance tax on your donation. You can choose either to update your current will using a codicil or add specific wording directly to your will detailing your donation. Please remember to include the charity’s registered charity number when you include your gift – 1072820.

The following are some words you may want to use for the will:

“I bequeath to The Batemans Trust, of 27, Stocks Lane Farm, Steventon OX13 6SS, the sum of £__. __ to be applied to the general purposes of the said charity.”

Sponsorship is a popular option for those who would like the link it gives you to the children in India. For one off donations or gifts for friends you can also use the Wish List.
