Help fund our work

LDA relies on donations. We need money to make significant inroads into improving the situation for those with Lyme disease, and those who are in danger of contracting it.

Donations will help directly with

  • printing and distributing leaflets and posters
  • expenses of contacting our MPs
  • commissioning research
  • conferences
  • exhibitions

Gift Aid it

However you choose to donate, if you are a UK taxpayer please complete a Gift Aid declaration. This lets us reclaim the income tax you have paid on your donation, and makes your donation worth an extra 25%! Standing Order forms and our fundraising platform have their own Gift Aid tickboxes. Otherwise, please download and complete this form and post it to us. Thank you.
