After completing your booking you will receive an email with our terms and conditions, you then simply provide your online signature & you’re done, we take care of the rest. If you already Gift Aid with us, just select ‘Existing Gift Aider’ and type in your 4 digits on the gift aid section.
What is Gift Aid?
When you make a donation to us, whether that’s a direct financial gift or a donation of goods 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 hospice 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. This is called Gift Aid and amounts to an extra 25p for every £1 that you give.
You can sign up to Gift Aid if you are a UK taxpayer. It’s easy to sign up – you can either tick the Gift Aid declaration when donating online, or complete a Gift Aid Declaration form, which is available in all of our hospice charity shops. This is a signed statement from you to us confirming that you wish to donate through Gift Aid and receive tax back on your donation to St Peter & St James Hospice. The money we make through Gift Aid helps our wonderful nurses provide expert and compassionate hospice care to local families.
