We are open seven days a week, 51 weeks of the year, and serve between 120 and 150 people every day. Our running costs are £35,800 per month. Although our building is given to us rent-free from the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark, we are dependent on voluntary donations to raise approximately 85% of our annual £430,000 budget (our local borough, Southwark, covers two third’s of the cost of our housing & welfare service i.e. we receive £55,000 per year from Southwark – 13% of our total funding).
- £7 will cover the costs for an individual to use our services for a day.
- £50 will cover the cost of our bought food for one day.
- £100 will cover the telephone and internet costs of our advice services for one month.
There are many ways of giving to suit all situations. If you have any questions, please contact our Administrator on 020 7357 9363 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your generosity is much appreciated and will help us continue our work. Many thanks!

Leave us a legacy in your Will
Please consider leaving us something in your will. A gift in your will to the Manna Society is a wonderful way to ensure that your compassion lives on and benefits those in need.

All you need to do is complete a Gift Aid form and we can reclaim tax on your gifts – even back over the last 6 years! You must have paid at least as much tax as we reclaim. For example, we can reclaim tax of £25 on a gift of £100. This means that you must have paid tax of at least £25.
Higher rate taxpayers can also claim a tax deduction on their self assessment tax returns.
