A local couple have found good fortune with a jackpot win in Weston Hospicecare’s Lottery Super Draw. Ed Fisher and his wife, Marilyn, of Mark, won £2000 in the quarterly Super Draw, a fantastic surprise for Mr Fisher and his family.
Weston Hospicecare’s Lottery costs as little as £1 a week to play, and entrants could be in with a chance of winning the weekly first prize of £500. There’s also a second prize of £50, and five £10 winners every week, plus the quarterly £2000 draw.
Of his win, Mr Fisher said: “It came as a very nice surprise. I’ve supported Weston Hospicecare through playing the Lottery and shopping in their Burnham on Sea shops, so to get a phone call to say I was a winner was wonderful. I do intend to give the winnings to my wife, and I’ll continue to support Weston Hospicecare.”
The Lottery brings in the equivalent of 50 days of clinical care to Weston Hospicecare, enabling us to continue providing care to patients with life-limiting illnesses, and their loved ones. That care can come in the form of support in patients own homes, activities run in the Day Hospice, or providing round-the-clock care in our In-Patient Unit.
With only 22% of our funding coming from the NHS, Weston Hospicecare relies on the generosity of the community to raise the remaining amount through fundraising, shopping in our network of shops, or playing the Lottery, like Mr Fisher.

    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.
