Weston Hospicecare runs an iniative each summer where people, businesses and any other group can open a garden to raise money for the charity.

Money raised from optional entry fees and tea, coffee and cake sales provide the platform for people to enjoy afternoons relaxing in peaceful settings throughout the summer.

Last year, Open Gardens raised more than £10,000 with gardens well-supported in Blagdon, Hutton, Wrington, Burnham-on-Sea, Weare, East Huntspill, Worlebury, Weston Town Centre and at the hospice’s own garden on the Jackson-Barstow House site in Uphill.

Community fundraiser Sue Harding says: “If your garden is attractive and made special by your hard work, love and care, please think about opening it to raise funds for Weston Hospicecare.

“Last year we opened gardens across North Somerset and raise £10,046. A truly magnificent total, one which we hope to surpass in 2019 with it being the hospice’s 30th anniversary year.”

The hospice must raise funds to cover 80% of its annual costs through revenue generated in shops, at fundraising events and donations.  

If you are interested in opening your garden to the public in aid of Weston Hospicecare this year, call 01934 423900 or email sue.harding@westonhospicecare.org.uk

    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.
