● Gift Aid: Gift Aid is one of the sim­plest and most ef­fec­tive ways of giv­ing to a char­ity of your choice.

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.

● Vol­un­teers: We are look­ing for peo­ple to help us in re­cep­tion, shop work and driv­ing our clients back and forth from their can­cer-re­lated hos­pi­tal ap­point­ments.

Driv­ers are ur­gently needed in the Rhondda area.

If you are able to help please tele­phone the cen­tre on 01443 479369.

We are also look­ing for vol­un­teers in the role of be­frien­ders vis­it­ing clients at their home one hour per week.

This may be a life­line for many clients as you may be the only per­son they see all week.

This is a new project for Rowan Tree Can­cer Care.

If you think you could help us or know any­one who can, then please ring or email us and we will send you out an ap­pli­ca­tion pack, or sim­ply go on to our web­site www. rowantreecan­cer­care. ● Can You Help Us?: If any­one has fundrais­ing ideas for the char­ity then please get in touch with us on the num­ber above.
