New Donation System

You can now support us to keep providing advice and personal support to patients and their families through JustGiving. 


If you were on a monthly donation via Virgin Money, we ask you to setup new direct debit on the new platform. It is quick and easy!

Add Gift Aid to your donations at no extra cost!

Gift Aid is a government scheme for UK charities to reclaim the tax you have paid and gain 25% more at no cost or hassle to you. For example: if you donate £100, we will get an extra £25 for being an eligible charity.


Mending Mum is a book by Julia Rawlinson and illustrated by Tiphanie Beeke with the purpose to make “the talk” with the young ones easier for them, for parents and caregivers. It is a very educational way to talk about liver disease with children the way they will easily understand. Download it for free by clicking on the image.

“Thank you will never be enough to my Donor family and all the wonderful staff at Addenbrooke’s, my Family and Friends and my Addenbrooke’s Liver Family Love you all.”
