Gift Aid is one of the sim­plest and most ef­fec­tive ways of giv­ing to a Char­ity. Gift Aid is a scheme in­tro­duced by the In­land Rev­enue which al­lows us to claim 25p for ev­ery £1 that you do­nate – as long as you get at least that amount in tax and give the char­ity per­mis­sion to claim.

It is a fan­tas­tic scheme that makes do­na­tions go even fur­ther at no ex­tra cost.

For ex­am­ple if you do­nate £10 then we can claim £2.50, mak­ing your do­na­tion worth £12.50.

The guide­lines re­quires a Gift Aid Dec­la­ra­tion Form to be com­pleted

This then gives us the data we need to be able to claim Gift Aid.

We have a large se­lec­tion of do­nated wigs avail­able in our cen­tre to pur­chase.

Real hair wigs from £20 and syn­thetic wigs from £10.

Please call the cen­tre on 01443 479369 to ar­range an ap­point­ment for wig fit­ting.

If any­one has fundrais­ing ideas for the char­ity then please get in touch with us on the num­ber above
