The Grand Pier will continue for a third consecutive year as the main sponsor for Weston Hospicecare’s Midnight Beach Walk.

This year the event will take place on Friday 7 September and will start from the Tropicana on Marine Parade.

The pier’s joint owner, Kerry Michael, says he is thrilled to continue to support the hospice as he appreciates just important community support is to the charity.

He said: “We are very happy to be supporting Weston Hospicecare once again with the Midnight Beach Walk. 

“The dedication and hard work that the hospice undertakes is absolutely vital within our community.

“Following further cuts in the NHS budgets, there is more pressure and reliance on the hospice to help support families in our local community at times when they need it the most.

“The Midnight Beach Walk is a great event which helps to raise vital funds to keep our local hospice going and we are delighted that the Grand Pier is able to support once again as the main sponsor of this event.”

It costs £4.2million every year to support the annual operation of Weston Hospicecare with 20% of that figure supplied by the NHS. The remaining 80% must be raised by other means such as retail, donations and fundraising events like the Midnight Beach Walk.

Event organiser, Kelsey Dehaney, said: “We are so grateful to the Grand Pier for sponsoring the Midnight Beach Walk for the third consecutive time since its revival in 2016.

“By taking part in the Midnight Beach Walk won’t just mean you light up the night, you’ll become a light in the dark for the hundreds of people we help support on a daily basis.”

Last year 342 women registered and completed the route, raising a total of £26,553.30 to support the hospice.  

Kelsey continued: “Being a women’s event, there is a real bond between all the participants and it is fantastic to see women coming together and supporting a great local charity which serves, and depends on the support from, the community.

“Whether you plan to take part in memory of a loved one, are keen to support a respected charity in your community, or you would simply like to enjoy a nice stroll along the beach with a friend, you’ll have a brilliant time.”

    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.
