With just under six weeks left to go until Burnham’s first-ever Bubble Rush, which is set to take place in Apex Park on Saturday, 5th August, Weston Hospicecare is inviting more local businesses to consider supporting the event.

The Bubble Rush is a fun 5K run, walk, toddle or stroll through four different coloured Bubble Stations. The family-friendly course is open to participants of all ages and abilities, and it is a particularly great event for those who want to take part in a fun, non-timed sports event or for those with sensory needs.

While some companies have chosen to support the Bubble Rush by attending or making a donation, others have chosen to sponsor one of the colourful Bubble Stations.

‘We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities available for local businesses who want to make this a brilliant event in Burnham while promoting the good work their company does in the local community,’ said Kelsey Dehaney, Weston Hospicecare’s event fundraiser.

Two area businesses, BWOC and AP Signs & Print, have already signed up to sponsor a Bubble Station on the day, but there are two spots left for any companies who might like to sponsor the blue or yellow Bubble Stations, in addition to other smaller sponsorship opportunities.

The hospice, which provides services to people affected by life-limiting illnesses in and around the Somerset/North Somerset area (including Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge), is keen to link up with local businesses to showcase the wonderful community.

‘We are really pleased to have the sponsors like BWOC and AP Signs & Print on board and to have the support of local businesses like the Sweet Shack, Lizzie’s Kitchen, DiMascio’s Ice Cream Van and Action Pussycat, who will all be there on the day to help make the event a success,’ said Kelsey. ‘With everything planned, the day is sure to draw a crowd and engage lots of people.’

If your organisation would like to sponsor the Bubble Rush in some way, please contact Kelsey.dehaney@westonhospicecare.org.uk or call on 01934 423967.

For those who would like to take part in the event, you can still register online up until 30 July. Places for the Bubble Rush are limited, so those interested are encouraged to sign up quickly!

    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.
