Your donation can go further thanks to Gift Aid! If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 that you donate. This includes regular or one off donations, the sales on items you donate to our shops, and event sponsorship.
So if you donate £20, we can claim an extra £5, making your gift worth £25!
It’s easy to do and is done at no extra cost to you!
We could even claim Gift Aid retrospectively, on any donations that you’ve made in the past four years.
Gift Aid with your donation
Paperwork is minimal. All that is required is the completion of the simple form (a Gift Aid Declaration Form (PDF 88kb)) which merely requires your name and address including postcode and a signature requesting the charity to treat your donation and all future donations as Gift Aid donations. This Declaration only needs to be completed once in order to cover all future donations to the charity which you may choose to make. It may, of course, be cancelled at any time.
Donations, whether in cash, cheques or bankers orders, may be treated in this way. Our online donations form collects this information, if appropriate, during the payment process.
Gift Aid in our shops
When you make a donation of items at one of our shops, we can also claim an extra 25% on the money we raise from the sale of your goods.
Please tell the shop when you make the donation that you would like to Gift Aid it!
Am I eligible for Gift Aid?
You must pay an amount of income tax or capital gains tax equal to the amount we are reclaiming, currently 25p on every pound you give, or you may be liable to be assessed for income tax on any excess.
Donors paying higher rate tax may claim relief against either income tax or capital gains tax.
