Hi Helen and welcome to the Gambia forum. There was a recent ( last July) thread covering this topic. As I understand it you can request a charity allowance from the airline and they usually will ask for a confirmatory letter from the particular charity you are donating to.Take a look here for more info:

If you are flying with T C then email them at TCHDPreTravelAdmin@thomascook.com with a copy of the letter from your charity and your flight details once booked. You may get a reply stating that can't add it till 90 days before your flight. Sometimes they will sometimes they confirm. Last time I even had it put onto my booking which is very unusual. TC allow 10kg which has to be packed separately.

Good luck
