I have written a blog post about how many people, who have had to work at home for all or part of 2020/21, due to the pandemic, can claim tax relief. In many cases £62.40, in a lot of cases more.

For a lot of people, the extra money will make a big difference. For some people, it will be of help; and for more fortunate people, it will hardly be noticed, if at all.

I am therefore hoping that some people will make a claim and donate some or all of their saving to one of the two charities that I am supporting: The Trussell Trust, and Samaritans. This page is for those who wish to donate to Samaritans.


Coronavirus is impacting all of our lives. This crisis is the biggest challenge Samaritans has ever faced. Before Coronavirus hit, 20,000 Samaritans volunteers were answering a call for help every six seconds.This could be someone you know, family or friends in urgent need but unable to talk to anyone in the middle of the night. It is more important than ever for Samaritans to be there 24/7, 365 days a year for those who need us. Samaritans' helpline is feeling the pressure. They're likely to experience more people struggling to cope or in crisis and they may have less volunteers to help answer calls for help. Their teams are working hard to ensure that we can still be here 24/7, 365 days a year for those who are in crisis. Your donation to Samaritans Emergency Appeal will help them reach those who are struggling to cope. It will help Samaritans recruit more volunteers and work faster on different ways to be there. Change the life of someone who desperately needs them.
