I don't 'do' Facebook, or any other social media, how do I donate please?

Why do those links come up in dollars? Can somebody please post up a link to a Paypal account. Incidentally I have raised £400 for the Mendip Cave Rescue this year. Things can be done by individual cavers but donations like this one need to be simple and easy.

You can donate via Paypal using the link on the right hand side on the CRO page: https://cro.org.uk/fundraising-for-cro/

On Just Giving you can change the currency by clicking on USD and selecting GBP. It really is easy to use.

The good thing about using Just Giving, rather than using Paypal Direct, is that you can automatically Gift Aid the donation, adding an additional 20% onto whatever you're giving.

I think Just Giving are having a few issues at the minute though, their site appears to be a little unstable. I'm sure it'll settle down in an hour or so.

Thank you for flagging this up - it's so easy to donate this way and it really helps - so much quicker than messing about with cheques!
