How to support us

If you are interested to know what your donation will pay for, or if you would like to make (or receive) a gift of a device to someone who needs it, please click here to look at a range of commonly supplied prosthetic and orthotic devices and their “full cost of production” prices. 

If you wish your donation to be used to pay for prosthetic and orthotic devices for people in Malawi and Zambia who would not otherwise be able to afford what they need, just mention “One Smile”. One Smile is a fund within 500 miles which is used exclusively for that purpose. Find out more here

Make a one-off or regular donation

You can make a one-off or a regular donation by any of the methods below. 

Online: You can make a one-off or regular donation by credit or debit card simply and securely through:

You can make donation on Virgin Money Giving or Just Giving with or without Gift Aid, but if you wish to add Gift Aid to a PayPal donation, you’ll have to send us a separate Gift Aid form by post to 500 miles, Box 500, 44-46 Morningside Road, Edinburgh EH10 4BF. You can download a Gift Aid form here.

*Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and is therefore the most cost effective of these three online options

By standing order: If you’d like to make a regular donation by standing order, you can download a standing order form here, fill it in and return it to us – or use it to find our bank details and set it up direct with your bank in the usual way. If you wish to add Gift Aid please send us a separate Gift Aid form by post to 500 miles, Box 500, 44-46 Morningside Road, Edinburgh EH10 4BF. You can download a Gift Aid form here.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you can complete a declaration which allows us to claim back tax at the basic rate on every gift you make to us – in other words, we’ll receive an extra 25p for every £1 you give. Click here to download a Gift Aid form.
