Inspired to register to take part in the Midnight Beach Walk in memory of her father, a Weston woman has called on all women to register as its confirmed you can still sign up in person on the night to take part in the walk tonight (Friday).

Claire Lowe will walk with her mother Wendy Lowe and her wife Christine Bygrave after their father, husband and father-in-law Robert Lowe died in November last year after being cared for by the hospice.

Claire said: “My father passed away peacefully at Weston Hospicecare on 26 November 2017, two months after being diagnosed with mesothelioma. This is where he spent the last 13 days of his life and he couldn’t have received better care.

“Our experience of Weston Hospice was second to none, we couldn’t fault it. No words can possibly express our thanks to everyone at the hospice. So we walk in appreciation for the constant help & support we received from the first minute we arrived, without which we couldn’t have coped.

“I walked two years ago in memory of a friend’s husband and never dreamt I would be at the hospice a year later with my father.

“So to any women thinking of walking please, please do it. You never know what tomorrow holds. This facility must be allowed to continue and can only do so with the help of your support at fundraising events like this.”

Women who wish to take part in the Midnight Beach Walk can still register on the night for the same price as online registration, which closed on Tuesday 4 September.

Participants will be charged an entry fee of £15 per adult and £10 per child and all the profits from the event will return to the hospice.

    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.
