Charity: The Heritage & Cultural Exchange
Charity number: 1174349
Description: The Heritage & Cultural Exchange has a unique people?s history archive which was built up over a 30-year period. Once this is sorted and catalogued properly the archive will be an important resource to help tell the story of heritage and community of Tiger Bay and Cardiff Docklands through exhibitions, education programmes and working in partnership with other heritage organisations. The collection includes a variety of media: paper-based, including books, plans, maps and files documents relating to individuals digital and audio recordings artefacts photographs and film. With a professional Community Collections Officer overseeing the work of a team of volunteers, the archive will be digitised and stored online so that it is not only preserved for future generations but also accessible for research purposes. The aim is also to collect new material to bring the information fully up-to-date

Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live Online, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
