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.

Sponsorship is easy to set up and is a great option for those who would like the link it gives you to the children in India. Find out more here.

You can make a one-off or regular donation online via Just Giving or if you would like to make a donation by cheque, please make it payable to The Batemans Trust and send it to: The Batemans Trust, 27 Stocks Lane, Steventon, Nr Abingdon, OXON, OX13 6SS. Please include a Gift Aid declaration with your cheque.  This means that every gift you make to the trust, whatever its value, could be worth almost one-third more to us, at no extra cost to you.

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.”
