How Gift Aid Works

Gift Aid gives you an extra 25p for every £1 you donate

Registered Charity

Registered Number 1135645
We’re a registered charity and if you are a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim 25p for every £1 you give us. Gift Aid is a government scheme where charities can reclaim money on your contribution from the HM Revenue & Customs.

For Example

If you donate £1.00 we will receive precisely £1.00. Should you Gift Aid it, then we will receive £1.25, in other words, increasing the value of your donations by 25% at no cost to you.

Reclaim Tax

Gift Aid allows us to reclaim from the Government the tax that you have already paid. If all our donors agreed to Gift Aid their donations, we could claim thousands of pounds more each year – vital extra funds that would help us in our work.


Once you have given us permission (by completing our Online Form; see below) on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

The declaration normally covers present, future and past donations. We will be able to claim Gift Aid on any donations made since the Gift Aid scheme was revised on 6 April 2000, as long as you are eligible.

Anyone in the UK

who has paid enough income tax or capital gains tax to cover the amount reclaimed by us in the current financial year can use Gift Aid.

As a higher rate taxpayer, you can reclaim 12% personal tax relief on your donation on top of what we will collect.

In order for us to claim Gift Aid on your donation(s), you must complete our Online Gift Aid Declaration Form.

You only need to do this once and all your donations to us thereafter will be treated as Gift Aided.

Please click on the ‘GiftAid It’ button and complete the online form in order to gift aid your donations.


We are unfortunately unable to claim Gift Aid on your donation if you do not pay tax. Therefore, if your situation changes in the future, please inform us.
