Gift to Celebrate

Gift to Celebrate

Celebrating a christening, a birthday, a wedding, a civil partnership, an anniversary, a retirement, or Christmas? As you celebrate a special event, help make a difference to the lives of those living with, or affected by, HIV, by asking friends and family to give a donation rather than a gift. One of the easiest ways to do this is by setting up a Just Giving page for your celebration, personalise it with photos and details of your occasion, and then sharing the link with your family and friends by email and social media. Contact the office if you would like Gift Aid envelopes to allow donations made at an event to go further.

Gift in Memory

Gift in Memory

Giving in memory is a very special way to honour and pay tribute to loved ones and friends and we appreciate you thinking of us at this time.

Collect at a Funeral or Memorial Event
Many people choose to remember their loved one by asking family and friends to make a donation at the funeral or a memorial event. There are three ways you can do this:

• By post to: The Make A Difference Trust, Unit 7 City Business Centre, Lower Road, London, SE16 2BX.
• Online via our green donation buttons (see above)
• Using our collection envelopes.
We can provide collection envelopes for use at funeral or memorial events, which can be sent back at a later date. Funeral Directors often help out with this.
For more information, please call the office on 020 7231 9719 or email

Donate in memory with JustGiving
You can tell the story of the person you’re remembering and enhance it using photos and video – all while raising money for The Make A Difference Trust in your loved one’s memory.

The JustGiving in Memory page only takes a few minutes to set up and allows your family and friends to donate and add their tributes to this page easily, safely and securely – wherever they are, whenever they want to.

Your donations given in memory will have a lasting impact on the lives of people living with, or affected by HIV & AIDS in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

MAD Ticket Scheme

MAD Ticket Scheme

How does it work?
When you contact us requesting help to obtain tickets for a show or performance, you agree to pay the full face value of the ticket(s) to the theatre, and in addition you pay the equivalent full face value of the ticket(s) to The Make A Difference Trust as a donation for our help in obtaining the tickets, and helping to ‘make a difference’ by supporting our charitable work.

We don’t hold a regular allocation of tickets, but rather we request them from the producers or theatres on an individual basis.

Every show works slightly differently and seat locations will vary by showdepending on what the producer or theatre have determined are the best seats. If you have specific seating needs or concerns, please be sure to let us know.
