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.

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