I'm afraid I'm not familiar with this end of the market

But if you're just setting up a simple (say 5 pages) site there are many 
services out there.

Just make sure your site uses the words people who are looking for you 
will use.

Use things like the name of your charity, what it does, and where it is 
- be literal - nobody searches for poetic headlines.

Try and use these words in important places (like in the page headings)

Then tell Google, Yahoo, MSN etc it exists

Getting a few links to your website will help - but really - for a small 
community site you don't need to work too hard :-)

Search for similar organisations, see which ones are easy to find and 
which are hard - try and be more like the easy ones ...

Start small, add a bit at a time, learn as you go, and don't try to get 
it all right first time  :-)
