Can you claim Gift Aid on the money I have raised?
Donations from UK tax payers are worth an extra 25p for every £1 donated at no extra cost to you!
For us to be able to claim Gift Aid on a personal donation you need to complete our gift aid form. For sponsored events check that the sponsor or donor is a UK tax payer, record their home address, postcode, and donation amount, and make sure they tick the Gift Aid box on your sponsorship form or fundraising page. If you are using a paper sponsorship form it must be returned to us with your donation to enable us to claim Gift Aid.
Please note that we are unable to claim Gift Aid on ticket sales, raffle sales, corporate sponsorship, and sale of goods or auction proceeds. We also cannot claim Gift Aid on payments from companies.
Can you organise a cheque presentation for me?
We’d love a member of staff or charity ambassador to meet you for a cheque presentation as it gives us the opportunity to say thank you in person. Please email us and we’ll try to facilitate this for you.
