Bleadon Parish Church has made the hospice their charity for Lent. Each Tuesday, they’re holding a soup lunch, and the proceeds from that event are coming to the hospice, along with any other donations.
Rev. Tim Erridge, who is the vicar of St Andrews, is encouraging people to think about putting faith into practice by helping others. He feels the hospice is an excellent focus for practical help, especially in terms of financial support.
On Sunday, March 12th, our hospice chaplain Karen Murphy went along to a new church venture for families called Sunday Teatime. She spoke to parents and children about the work of the hospice, and the children made candles to light as prayers for those who are ill. The children then made beautiful thank you cards for the hospice staff and volunteers for all we do, and these cards will be on display in the chapel.

Karen Murphy will be leading two Lent groups for the church at the hospice in March, so that those attending can get an experience of the surroundings if they haven’t visited previously. It’s also a chance to encourage people to talk about where we find support and help during hard times, such as when you’re facing death and bereavement.

We’d like to thank everyone at Bleadon Parish Church, particularly the children who have taken the time to think of the hospice and those we care for. It’s always wonderful to see that kind of care and thoughtfulness!

    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Weston Hospicecare to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Weston Hospicecare we can claim back 25p from the government.

    By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Weston Hospicecare to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Weston Hospicecare will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

    What is Gift Aid?

    Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Weston Hospicecare receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

    All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

    The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
