Making a donation

Set up regular donations to us and become a Friend of Cyrenians. As a Friend you'll get a copy of our annual Impact Report and see the difference your continued support is making. Being a Friend of Cyrenians also sends the message to our service users, our volunteers and our staff that there are people in the community who value the difference we are making. It shows that our Friends care and share a passion for a fairer, more inclusive society.
You can donate to Cyrenians by texting CYRN17 followed by the amount you wish to donate to 70070. You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10. For example, to donate £5 you would text CYRN11 £5 to 70070.
All the money you donate comes to us. You may be charged for your text message. Please refer to your network operator’s standard rates and obtain bill payer's permission. If you have any questions about JustTextGiving, visit Just Text Giving.
