Even a small gesture can make a big difference to someone’s life.

Great things can be achieved through small acts of kindness. And even a simple gesture can have a huge impact.

At The Somerville Foundation, we realise that, while you want to help, not everybody has the time or money to donate. So, to help you help us, we have a number of ways to show you care. Because making a difference to someone’s life doesn’t have to be difficult.

Thank you very much for your support. We couldn’t do what we do without you.

Don’t Send Me a Card

Send eCards to people you care about while supporting our important work.

While printed charity cards can only offer a small percentage to the charity (typically 10-15%), when you send one of our customised ecards you’ll donate the cost of cards and stamps.

It’s a little gesture that means a lot to CHD patients.

You can use Don’t Send me a Card at Christmas, for birthdays and other celebrations, and “just because”.

If you’ve decided to show your support to the Somerville Foundation, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The valuable work we carry out wouldn’t be possible without people like you.
