CV Gower Funeral Directors has raised £4,351.35 at its annual charity day in support of Weston Hospicecare and the RNLI.

The fun-filled fundraiser included activities such as face-painting, name the teddy, a raffle and a tombola as well as other family games.

The day concluded with a balloon release in memory of loved ones who have passed away.

Rachel Mansfield, a community fundraiser for the hospice, said it was a fantastic day to be involved in.

She said: “Thank you to CV Gower Funeral Directors for hosting this event to support two excellent local charities.

“I have never seen this event so busy in the past and it was great to see so many people engaging and enjoying themselves all in aid of supporting local causes who rely on the support from the community on a daily, weekly and yearly basis.

“We raised £4,351.35 which is incredible and on behalf of Weston Hospicecare I would like to thank everyone for dedicating time to support the event and to those who donated throughout the day.

“The hospice provides free services to those with life-limiting illnesses and only receives 20% of its funding from the NHS, so events like this are essential.”

The hospice has to raise more than £3.334million per year to support the free services provided to those with life-limiting illnesses.

    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.
