Making a regular donation through your pay to the British Red Cross is easier than you think.

A regular donation in your pay to the British Red Cross costs less than you think.
Donations are taken from your pay before tax. If you pledge to give £10 a month, it will only cost you £8 if you are a standard rate tax payer.
Regular donations give the British Red Cross a reliable source of income. This allows us to respond quickly to emergencies in the UK and abroad.
How to donate in your pay
If you earn a salary or pension and your employer deducts Pay As You Earn (PAYE) tax, you can donate in your pay.
If your employer already supports payroll giving, speak to them about setting up your monthly gift.
It takes one to two months before the first gift is taken from your wages. Don’t worry if your donation doesn’t appear in your next pay packet.
To stop donating or change the amount you give, contact your payroll department.
Changing job and want to continue donating in your pay? You’ll need to set up a new gift by following the same process with your new employer.
