Weston Hospicecare, the local charity that provides vital care and support to people affected by life-limiting illnesses, has recently launched its appeal to the public, asking for keen gardeners to consider opening their garden in aid of the hospice. To tie in with the appeal, the hospice has arranged for John Crockford-Hawley, a very knowledgeable and popular local historian, to give a talk about Weston’s parks and gardens.
‘We have been lucky enough to secure John Crockford-Hawley, who has very generously agreed to offer his services to the hospice and give a talk entitled ‘Bloom & Pleasure, An illustrated wander through Weston’s Parks & Gardens’,’ said Sue Harding, community fundraiser at Weston Hospicecare.
This talk is to be held at Weston College’s Knightstone Campus on Tuesday, 6 June. Although the talk starts at 7:15 p.m., guests are asked to arrive by 6:45 p.m.
Tickets, which are available from the hospice’s fundraising department, are priced at just £10, which includes a first glass of wine. All proceeds from the evening will come to Weston Hospicecare.
‘John is a very interesting and entertaining speaker,’ Sue said. ‘His recent series of talks in the town were an absolute sell-out – and tickets are strictly limited, so contact us now to book your spot!’
To purchase tickets, or for further information, please contact 01934 423 926.

    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.
