You can support the work of HRI in various ways, whether by shopping online, taking part in a fundraising event or joining our ‘people bank’ of potential volunteers.
Shop and donate – without it costing you a thing!
The Giveasyoulive scheme has raised over £4 million for charities throughout the UK, by allowing people to raise money for their favourite charity when they shop online. Famous companies such as Amazon, Lastminute.com, Boots etc. donate a percentage of what you spend on their websites to the charity of your choice, at no cost to you.
Sign up is fast and easy, then just look for the ‘Turn on give as you live’ at the top of the screen when you’re shopping and you can start donating. For once there really is no downside, so please show your support for HRI by signing up today. Thank you.
Whether you are taking part in an event yourself, or playing the all important role of event organiser, this can be a fun way to support HRI. Events, however small or large, can benefit the Institute by raising awareness of our work.
So far HRI supporters have,
- held a free acute homeopathy clinic with patients giving donations to HRI in return for treatment
- braved atandem skydive with the Red Devils, and
- run a half-marathon.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss fundraising activity ideas and ways we can help with promotional items e.g. HRI T shirts, collecting tins etc.

HRI people bank
HRI is very fortunate to have the help of volunteers who enable us to keep our administrative costs to a minimum.
The nature of our work is so varied that we often need quite specific skills, facilities or services at short notice, sometimes just for a short period of time. This is when we look to our People Bank for potential helpers for specific projects.
In the past, volunteers have helped us with everything from translating non-English language research papers to providing meeting space, all on an ad-hoc basis.
If you would like to put yourself forward to help HRI in this way, either as a volunteer or by providing services, please add your details to the HRI people bank here.
Your help is much appreciated.
