The snow has only just melted, and there might even be more on the way, but believe it or not, it’s now officially Spring. With Easter right around the corner, the town of Burnham-on-Sea is getting ready for its holiday season to begin. As schools across the country take a two week break, caravan parks will start filling up, and our Weston Hospicecare shops in the High Street and College Street will be ready to welcome residents and holiday makers alike.

If the lack of warmth outside makes you long for something a bit brighter, pay a visit to our High Street store to take a look at their fabulous window display. Put together by our retail assistant, Kim, the display features bright yellow daffodils, colourful mini eggs, and hand-decorated egg cups filled with spring flowers. It’s warm and welcoming, just like the store itself. Shop manager Emily Wagemans, said “We’re looking forward to welcoming lots of visitors to the shop over Easter and into the Summer season. Our shelves are filled with a range of brand new toys and games, and we’ve also got a fantastic collection of clothes. Whether it’s hand-made Easter Chicks, brand new jewellery, or the perfect outfit, we have something for everyone.”

If you live in the area and have some time to spare, why not consider volunteering in one of our Burnham shops? You’re promised a warm and friendly welcome, and whatever time you can spare would be very much appreciated. Not only does volunteering benefit Weston Hospicecare and the community, it’s also a great way to make new friends and learn valuable new skills; ideal if you’re looking to re-enter employment.

If you’d like to know more, contact our Volunteering Department on 01934 423975, or call into our Burnham High Street Store.

    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.
