Donate to the work of Love Southend Online

Supporters and volunteers, hopefully, you will have noticed at the top of each of the Love Southend web pages there is now a donate button.

Could we ask you to direct any giving from your contacts to us through this system where possible as it will also allow us to obtain Gift Aid from those eligible and also it encourages people to visit these pages.

Thank you and God bless you all,
