Gift Aid

If you make a donation and you tell us that you pay tax in the UK we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. It won’t cost you a penny more!

Donating through the Gift Aid scheme means charities can claim Gift Aid from the Government on most donations.

 

What you need to do

You need to make a Gift Aid declaration so that we can claim Gift Aid. You can do this if you download a form and post it back to us or hand it into one of our shops.

 

Paying enough tax to qualify for Gift Aid

Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than 4 times what you have paid in tax in that tax year (6 April to 5 April).
