Members of staff from Lloyds Bank have taken time from their work schedule to tidy Weston Hospicecare’s garden as part of the company’s volunteering programme.

Employees of the bank are encouraged to use one working day to support charities or causes in their local community.

Team leader Rachel Andrews works with the Insurance & Wealth department in the region and volunteers for the hospice in her spare time.

She said: “Lloyds Banking Group has a volunteering programme, where colleagues are invited to use at least one working day, or eight hours, a year helping support their local community.

“I am a volunteer at the hospice which is why we initially started to volunteer here as a group and we have been coming back every year since.

“It is really important to us that we help support our communities and all colleagues of Lloyds are encouraged to support local projects.

“The gardens at the hospice are a beautiful area for patients and their families to enjoy. Visitors have often said to us that they love walking around the gardens and sitting on the benches in the sunshine.

“The hospice is very important to the local community giving vital care to patients in Weston and the surrounding area. Just talking to anyone who has had dealings with the hospice, you realise what a special place it is.

“We enjoy coming back to the hospice each year as it gives us the opportunity to help in our community and to get together as a team outside the office environment.”

    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.
