Thousands of our retired pensioners are now able to contribute more to those in need through the Royal Mail retired pensioner matched giving scheme

If you are a retired pensioner for Royal Mail you can now join our Midlands Chairman, John Purser, in helping to claim match funding for your fundraising.

Royal Mail has now introduced a new matched giving scheme for its retired pensioners, to help people - past and present - raise even more for those in need.

What’s on offer?
Royal Mail retired pensioners can now claim up to £50 per person each year in matched giving, up to a total limit of £100,000 each year, for funds for any UK registered charity or registered good cause.

If I'm a retired pensioner, how do I apply?
Once your fundraising event is complete and you have collected and banked the money you’ve raised, all you need to do is:
1. Complete the application form their web site www.myroyalmail.com/pensioner-matched-giving  with your details and those of our charity

2. Provide  evidence of the money you have raised by including a letter of thanks/receipt

3. Post your completed application form and supporting evidence to Charities Trust to:

Charities Trust
Suite 20-22
Century Buildings
Tower Street
Liverpool L3 4BJ

Charities Trust, on behalf of Royal Mail, will check your details and then make a donation to your chosen charity or good cause on your behalf. Charities Trust will send you a letter to advise you once the donation has been made.
