Gift Aid

Gift Aid is an easy way for you to donate more of your money to help our greyhounds without costing you a penny.

All it costs is a few minutes of your time.

Did you realise that if you are a UK taxpayer then we as a charity can reclaim the tax paid by you at the basic rate because , as a basic rate tax payer you need to earn £1.25 to take home £1? So instead of giving the tax man 25p you would be giving it to us. That means that for every £1 you donate to us we can claim an extra 25p, making your £1 donation worth £1.25. It’s amazing how all those 25p’s soon mount up.

All you have to do is make a gift aid declaration (downloadable from our website) send it to us or scan and attach it to an email and we do the rest.

If you don’t have access to a computer but would like to make a gift aid declaration then please telephone us on 01932 224918 and we’ll send out a form to you or you can write to us at the kennels or pick up a form next time you’re visiting.

This form enables us to collect any of your donations, be it a one off donation or a regular payment such as a standing order via your bank. Don’t forget if you set up a standing order or other kind of regular payment please let us know what it’s for by giving us a reference.

Gift aid can only be claimed by us on donations, so not for items purchased from our shop or regular payments for our lottery. If you have already set up a regular donation to us but aren’t sure if you have filled in a gift aid form then please contact Brian Rowatt (contact details below) and he’ll be happy to help you.

Brian logs and prepares all our gift aid forms so that we can make our claim to HMRC. It is a thankless task and we really appreciate Brian doing this for us.
