Do you enjoy knitting? If so, then Weston Hospicecare needs your help! With Easter right around the corner, we’d like to make as many of these cute little chicks and their bunny pals to raise money for the hospice. The idea is simple; each bunny or chick nestles neatly over the top of a Creme Egg (or similar), and is then sold for £1.50

Where you come in: We need knitters! If you’d like to help raise money for us by knitting some of these chicks or bunnies, you can download and print the pattern that will tell you all you need to know. Any coloured wool is acceptable; the world needs pink chicks and orange bunnies, the more the merrier! You can make as many as you choose, and once you’ve finished, complete the slip at the bottom of the pattern and return your Easter friends to us either at the hospice in Uphill, or to any of our Weston Hospicecare shops. You don’t need to provide the eggs, though you can if you’d like to, of course!

Not a knitter? No problem! We’re also looking for Creme Eggs! If you’d like to donate some to us, just drop them into our reception at Jackson-Barstow House here in Uphill, and we promise not to eat them all. Alternatively, if you’d like to take on an alternative form of fundraising, take a look at our events page, community page, or challenges, to find out how you can get involved!

    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.
