"How are you financed?"

Historically,BCY relies totally on donations from local churches as well as individual supporters for funding its work. With the changing financial climate we are now working on other income streams for our work including Fundraising Events (for the latest see our Calendar Page) and Grant Funding Applications.


"Can I get a look at your finances?"

As a charity (Registered Charity no. 1000519), our annual accounts are available for viewing via the Charities Commission website - click here. 


"How can I support you financially?"

If you would like to support us financially, there are lots of ways you can do it...


Our regular donors are our financial lifeblood and our ambitious target is to treble the number of regular donors to 123 by the end of 2015/16. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3 to be a part of the 123 Community!

1. Download the standing order mandate.

2. Fill it in (don't forget to Gift Aid!)

3. Return it to the office - scan and email or snail mail to the address on the form.



Simply text ABCY25 and the amount you would like to donate (£1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10) to 70070. For example, if you would like to donate £5, type 'ABCY25 £5' and send it to 70070. Vodafone will even send you a follow-up message which allows you to Gift Aid your donation. Easy peasy!




Give as You Live enables you to raise money simply by doing your usual shopping online - at no extra cost to you and with very little fuss! Complete a one-off registration process and we then receive small donations each time you shop online with a surprisingly large (and growing) number of retailers.


Or simply send us a one-off donation!

Small or large, we welcome every single donation towards our work. Send cheques payable to BCY to:

BCY Office, Pump Lane, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 2NX
