People can now save money on posting Christmas cards while raising money for Weston Hospicecare through the Onepost Christmas stamp campaign.

Those wishing to post Christmas greetings cards will save up to 6p per stamp while the hospice will receive 9.5p from each stamp sold.

To use the service people will need to bring addressed cards to any Weston Hospicecare shop or Jackson-Barstow House, apply the purchased stamps to the cards and then give the cards to Weston Hospicecare staff.

Director of Retail Gemma Turner said: “This is a great initiative for people to save money on postal costs for the festive period while raising funds for the hospice.

“People are able to easily take advantage of discounted costs through any one of our shops or by visiting Weston Hospicecare headquarters at Jackson-Barstow House in Uphill.

“It also serves as a great way to get organised and ensure your festive messages arrive on time for Christmas.”

The service has two collections dates, the first will be on Monday 3 December while the final collection date will be a week later on Monday 10 December.

People wanting to take advantage of the initiative must post cards through the hospice on or before 10 December.

    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.
