Gift Aid

When you make a donation to us, whether that’s a direct financial gift or a donation of items for us to sell in our charity shops, we’re able to claim back the tax that you have paid on the donation. As a charity, we don’t pay tax on most types of income, which is why the tax paid on donations we receive can be claimed back. St Peter & St James Hospice can claim 25p for every £1 that you donate if you are signed up to Gift Aid.
