Gardening enthusiast and dedicated Weston Hospicecare volunteer Patsy Williams of Exeter Road, Weston, is preparing to open her garden to visitors to raise funds for the hospice as part of its new Open Gardens scheme.
Patsy’s garden is bursting with foliage, colour and life, and even though it is small, every foot of space is full of exotic plants and trees. Her garden has been featured in the Amateur Gardening magazine and has previously been opened under the National Gardens Scheme.
‘I love my garden so much – to me, it’s like paradise. It’s very tranquil and a place I can relax in,’ said Patsy. ‘Opening my garden for others to enjoy is a real pleasure. I love sharing my passion for the garden, meeting people and talking about the plants, so the opportunity to do it again and raise money for Weston Hospicecare is something I jumped at.’ 
Sally Davis from the hospice said, ‘We are very grateful to Patsy for sharing her lovely garden and raising funds for Weston Hospicecare. Throughout the summer, a number of gardens, large and small, will be open in support of the hospice, but we would welcome more and so we are asking anyone with a lovely garden to think about opening it for Weston Hospicecare. We welcome gardens of all sizes and styles, and the Fundraising Team can offer lots of support. To find out more please give us a call on 01934 423927.”
Patsy’s garden will be open on July 29th and 30th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and as well as the beautiful plants, visitors will be able to enjoy teas, coffees, cold drinks and homemade cakes.
Details of other gardens taking part in the Scheme will be available on the Weston Hospicecare website.

    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.
