Tip of the week: Charitable donations

INSTEAD of searching pockets for loose change, you could donate €250 to your preferred church or charity and allow them to claim your tax relief on the donation, too.

In the Bible (Genesis 14:18-20), the word tithe is mentioned as your God-given command to support religious and charitable entities. The amount recommended is 10pc of your annual income, whether in cash or in kind.

€4.81 a week, at less than 2pc of the minimum wage; it’s not a lot to donate and if everyone gave, a lot of good would ensue.
