Why Donate to BackCare?

Back pain is now the world’s leading cause of disability. It affects half the UK population in any given month and costs more than £50 million per day in NHS treatments, disability benefits and sickness absence. Because back pain is so common, many people have no idea how serious it can be. Every year more than 2 million people in the UK develop chronic back pain which doesn’t go away. Highly disabling chronic back pain has a profoundly damaging impact and is linked to higher rates of fatal heart attack, terminal cancer and suicide.

BackCare is a unique charity – our mission is to turn the tide on back pain through our research, education and outreach activities. By donating to BackCare, you’re supporting a very worthy cause. We are very grateful for all donations and people can donate their time, effort or money in many different ways – whether that’s volunteering your skills, organising a fundraiser, running the marathon or simply popping a cheque in the post.

Legacy Giving

Leaving a legacy to BackCare helps our efforts to prevent and treat back pain, and to ensure that what can’t be prevented can be effectively treated.

Donate your used stamps

BackCare have teamed up with Recycling for Good causes. Simply cut or carefully rip the postage stamp from the used envelope, being careful that you don’t damage the stamp.  Once you have a collection, pop them in an envelope, making sure you remember to add the correct postage, and send to:

BackCare Stamp Appeal
PO Box 16992

Recycle your unwanted jewellery, watches and more

You can donate all your broken and unwanted jewellery at no cost to you whilst raising money for BackCare.

  • Any jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items (like odd earrings, snapped chains or items with missing stones).
  • You can donate any unwanted banknotes from ANY country of any age, so all of those obsolete pre-euro notes are a perfect start!

Our partners at Recycling for Good Causes will reuse and recycle the jewellery and Banknotes, giving the proceeds to BackCare, saving precious raw materials at the same time.

If you would like to send your jewellery and banknote recycling in, simply use your own envelope or jiffy bag (No bigger than A5 in size) and post free of charge by printing out this Freepost Label and attaching to your envelope.

You can now select National Back Pain Association as your preferred Charity at Amazon Smile.  We receive a donation of 0.5% of the net purchase price of eligible purchases.
