REMEMBER GIFT AID - What is gift aid and how does it work?
Gift Aid allows UK charities to claim back the basic rate tax already paid on donations by the donor. This means we can claim back from the government on your behalf 25p for every £1 donated, boosting the value of the donation by a quarter.
Please help and remembered to check the GIFT AID BOX upon payment.
