Can I pay cash in at a bank?

You can pay money in at any Post Office, bank or building society except Nationwide or Britannia. They should have paying-in slips with the DEC's bank account details on them.

Please keep the slip with your name, the amount donated and a bank stamp as this acts as your receipt and will be the only proof that you have donated. You will need to send this to us if you require a receipt or thank you letter from the DEC.

Banks kindly request that you sort any coins into separate bags which they can give you before you pay in. 

All banks should support DEC appeals. However that can vary from branch to branch, and some may run out of the slips or just not realise that they have them. We do our best to make sure there are as many ways to pay money in as possible, however we can't guarantee that every branch will be able to facilitate this method of payment. We don't have paying in slips at the DEC's offices as we do not produce them ourselves.

If you do have difficulty then other ways to pay can be found at
