If you are a UK tax payer you can gift aid your donation.  Gift Aid is a scheme available to charities enabling them to  claim extra money from HMRC.

We can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate.  That’s as long as you’ve paid the basic rate of tax and make the donation from your own funds. This means Gift Aid can increase the value of your donations by 25%. 

You can download the Gift Aid form by clicking the button below.  Please return the form to Suzi at Hilfield.
