How can you help our charity?
As a completely self-funded charity, we rely on donations to keep our work going. We know times are tough for many people right now, but even the smallest donation can really help us grow and reach more people who need us. You could also hold a fundraising event to raise money for TakeTen, with your friends or with your colleagues at work. There's loads of ways you can get involved! Here's just a few:
Donate as you buy
Did you know that whenever you buy anything online - from your weekly shop to your annual holiday - you could be raising free donations for TakeTen Mental Health with easyfundraising? There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation - including eBay, Argos, John Lewis, ASOS, Booking.com and M&S - and it won't cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds!
All you need to do is:
1. Go to our easyfundraising homepage and join for free.
2. Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first to find the site you want and start shopping.
3. After you've checked out, the retailer will make a donation to TakeTen Mental Health at no extra cost to you whatsoever!
There are no catches, no hidden charges and TakeTen Mental Health will be really grateful for your donations. You'd be surprise how quickly it mounts up!
Make a donation to us directly
If you'd like to make a donation to TakeTen, either as a one-off or a recurring monthly donation, you can do so online via PayPal.
Use the links below to make your donation or sign up to a monthly recurring payment of £2.00. For less than the price of a coffee, you can help us plan ahead by giving regular monthly donations. This can help set up support groups, drop-in services and more.
You're not bound to anything, you can opt out of these monthly payments in your PayPal account at any time, should you need to take a break.

Hold a fundraising event
Are you thinking of holding an event to raise money for a good cause? Choosing TakeTen is not only a great way to fundraise for a local charity, but to increase awareness of mental health issues and suicide prevention. Planning an even in TakeTen's name helps start the conversation and break down the stigma that still exists around suicide and depression.
Maybe you fancy holding a tea and cake afternoon with friends, getting active by doing a sponsored walk or signing up for a mud run, or if you're looking for something to get the adrenaline pumping, how about a skydive?
There are endless ways you can fundraise for TakeTen and you don't have to do it alone. If you're planning an event, just let us know and we're more than happy to help you out with advice and even a branded t-shirt to wear for the event!
Get in touch to see how we can help make your event a success:
Leave us a gift in your Will
If you leave a gift to a charity in your Will, it will be tax-free and can help reduce the inheritance tax paid on your estate. That means that any amount you leave to us will be donated to us in full, and we will benefit from the full amount you leave.
People choose to leave gifts in their Will for many reasons, but remembering a charity that is close to your heart is meaningful and is a great way to help us continue our work.
Get a Will or an LPA and Vital Documents will make a donation on your behalf
If you don't have a Will yet, or are interested in making an LPA (lasting power of attorney), we have partnered with a local Batley-based company who are specialist Will Writers. If you use Vital Documents for your Will or LPA, and mention TakeTen when you get in touch, they'll make a £45 donation to our charity if you go ahead with their services.
Find out more about them below, and if you get in touch remember to mention us!
What will my donation do?
Because we receive no government funding, donations of any kind are highly welcomed. Funding can help us to with all of our activities, such as running our weekly group sessions, offer regular 1-to-1 drop-in sessions, offer a safe space to those in crisis, attend crisis situations as first responders, manage a crisis helpline and so much more.
We are always looking for ways to expand our network to enable those most vulnerable to get help from us. Other donations such as furniture, shelving and activity packs are also needed to enable our new premises to be more welcoming and transform it into our home.
