Sierra Leone Education and Development Trust

Please support our work with a donation, preferably using the Virgin Money Giving button - this saves us money and enables us to benefit from Gift Aid immediately. By contrast, if you donate to our bank we will wait to receive the Gift Aid on your donation for up to 12 months.

Gift Aid adds 25% to your donation because this money is refunded to us by HMRC ('the tax man'). A donation of £20 therefore becomes £25 with Gift Aid.

If you would like to donate directly to our bank account, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and he will send you the details.

We bank with Triodos Bank, based in Bristol. We are a registered charity number 1158253

Or send your cheque to Kevin Curley CBE, Sierra Leone Education and Development Trust, 6 Cumberhills Road, Duffield, Belper DE56 4HA

Please let us know if you are a tax payer. If you are we can recover 25 pence in tax (known as Gift Aid) from HMRC for every pound of your donation.

Please be sure to give us your full name and address with postcode.

Or you could donate online below. We prefer donors to use Virgin Money Giving so that we receive Gift Aid quickly and without any administrative work - Virgin do it all for us.
