Gift Aid allows us to claim back £2.50 from every £10.00 we receive both from the subscriptions you pay weekly and any donations made to the Group. This does not cost you a penny as it is claimed back from tax you have already paid and if we don't claim it, it ends up at HM Revenue and Customs.

This is 'free' money that we can claim, that benefits your child and the Group. All you have to do, if you meet the conditions, is fill in a form, return it to your child's section leader and then we do the rest.

By simply filling in a form you help us keep your child's weekly subscriptions as low as possible, and help to improve the facilities and equipment that we have available for everyone to use.

If your child attends every week and pays their £2 subscription, that is about £80 per annum, this is actually worth £100.00 if the Group can claims back the tax. The Group claims the extra £20.00 tax back from HMRC. For example, we have about 100 children in the Group each paying approximately £80 a year, the Group could potentially claim back around £2000 from HMRC each year!

If you are a higher rate taxpayer the Group can still only claim back tax at the lower tax rate. However, you can claim the extra in additional tax relief when you complete your Self-Assessment Tax Form. For full details visit HM Revenue and Customs, Gift Aid pages.

Would you rather this money went to the tax man or helped provide new equipment for the benefit of your child? If you pay at least £20.00 in tax a year, you can fill in a form and we can start claiming Gift Aid on your child’s subscriptions and using the money for their benefit. Alternatively if you are making a donation we can claim back £2.50 from every £10.00 you donate, as long as you pay enough tax.

Simply follow this link to download the interactive form, fill it in, print it, return it to your section leader and we will do the rest.

We are currently looking for someone to help us administer our gift aid declarations , if you are interested please Contact Us to discuss what this involves.
