Make a donation
If you have online banking, you can make a direct transfer to The Alex Roberts-Miller Foundation at: a/c no: 31681328, NatWest Bank (Dorking UK branch) sort code no: 60-07-02. Please remember to include your name as a reference so that we know who sent it.
You can make one-off or regular donations through Virgin Money Giving. They can even arrange for Gift Aid to be reclaimed automatically. The only charges they make are a 2% transaction fee and a 2.5% card processing fee. From September 2019 sponsors will be able to opt into the 'Donor Covers Fee' scheme, which allows them to cover these small charges so that the charity receives 100% of the money raised.
To donate by post, please make cheques payable to "The Alex Roberts-Miller Foundation" and send it to: The Alex Roberts-Miller Foundation, P.O. Box 104, Dorking, Surrey RH5 6YN.
To make a regular donation, please complete our standing order form. Regular donations are of special value, as they provide us with a predictable flow of funds.
You'll be glad to hear there are LOADS of ways to help us!

OUCH - Oxford University vs Charterhouse School
OUCH 2021 will take place (COVID-willing!) on Sunday 11th July at Charterhouse School. We are longing to see everyone again for a jolly day of picnics, family fun and friendly rivallry. For obvious reasons OUCH 2020 was cancelled, so we're hoping to make this one a biggy!
For a mere £5 - or a smile if you're under 18 - you can join us for a fabulous day of picnics and cricket in the leafy, (almost always) sunny charms of Charterhouse School. Entry price includes fun and games for kids, a delicious half time tea and a ticket for the raffle. OUCH usually takes place in May, is always on a Sunday, often on the bank holiday weekend.
The series stands at 10 wins for Charterhouse, 6 for Oxford and 1 draw.
When we are organising a special event we will publish details here. Events in the past have included a wine tasting with Olly Smith, black-tie balls, quiz nights and a night at the dog racing track in Wimbledon. We have a few things up our sleeve but nothing concrete yet (thank goodness - imagine how tricky it would be to lift our arms!)...
