Weston-based Abatec Recruitment will hold a charity golf day on 3 August to support Weston Hospicecare.

Abatec is celebrating its 30th birthday and is celebrating the landmark by raising money for three charities during the year.

Weston Hospicecare community fundraiser Sue Harding said: “We are extremely grateful to Abatec Recruitment for choosing the hospice as its chosen charity for the upcoming charity golf day.

“Every year we rely on support from the community that we serve, so it is fantastic to see a business, which operates locally with staff who may live in the community, come together for a fun day while supporting a great charity.

“On behalf of the hospice, we would like to congratulate Abatec Recruitment for celebrating 30 years in business.”

Abatec’s managing director, Phil Davies, says the company has decided to support Weston Hospicecare because of a personal connection which involved the charity.

He said: “We are a Weston-super-Mare-based recruitment company that is celebrating 30 years of trading. In honour of this milestone, we are supporting and raising money for three worthwhile charities which have a personal meaning to us.

“Right now, we are focusing on raising money for Weston Hospicecare. The facility based in Uphill is truly amazing; providing palliative care for those suffering from life-limiting illnesses as well as supporting their loved ones in Weston and the surrounding areas.

“Unfortunately, an ex-member of Mendip Spring Golf Club and very close friend to our mine, Graham Grey, sadly lost his battle whilst under the care of this wonderful charity.

“To raise awareness and money, Abatec will be hosting a charity golf day on 3 August at Mendip Spring Golf Club, with all proceeds going to Weston Hospicecare.”

    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.
