Thank you for your support.
Got any old stamps and coins?
TWAM has teamed up with Xchange-Master to collect used and old stamps and coins to help raise funds for our work. It is really simple for individuals, churches, community halls and groups to use.
1. Simply contact Xchange-Master direct by phone or email:
Telephone: 0141 328 9357
2. They will send you a pack containing a box, a Freepost return envelope and all instructions.
3. Post your stamps and coins to them, and they will sell them and send a proportion of the money raised to TWAM.
Got an old car, bike or van to donate?
If you have a car, bike or van you don’t want the hassle of selling or just want it to go to a good cause, TWAM would love to have it. It is so simple, you contact Give a car directly either by filling in their online donation form or calling them on 020 7736 4242. Once they have confirmed your details, they will organise for one of their collection partners to call you. They will arrange a suitable time with you to collect your vehicle. They aim to have your vehicle collected within seven working days.
The aim is to raise funds for TWAM and once sold the money less an admin fee of between 25-30% will be sent to us. They have nearly raised over £3.5 million for charity and every vehicle is worth something. Giveacar provides an easy way for people to remove a car and raise money for a good cause, and at no cost to you.
We at TWAM are very aware that times are difficult for many and are always amazed at the generosity of our supporters, so we are always seeking out alternative methods for people to 'give at no cost'.
Vintage Cash Cow is a platform for selling vintage items (including broken, disused, and unwanted items). The service is quick, free, and easy to use:
Start by packing your unwanted items into a box (there is a list online of what they will and won't take)
Call them on their freephone number (0800 246 1111) or go online (vintagecashcow.co.uk) and get a free postal label (and insurance)
Send them to Vintage Cash Cow. Either take the box to the post office or get it collected directly from your home
Wait for their no-obligation call with an offer of cash for your items within 3-5 working days.
The money you receive, or part of it, can be donated to TWAM
Once you have submitted a box and received your money, you can also refer a friend. If you do so, you (and they) will receive a £20 bonus. This can be taken in a number of ways, but one of the options is to nominate paying it to a charity.
A number of us have tried the process already and found it very straightforward, raising £90 with lots of old items that had been left lying around.
