A team of staff members from the Regency Purchasing Group have pledged to raise £1,000 for Weston Hospicecare by taking part in the hospice’s brand-new Bubble Rush event, which takes place in Apex Park in Burnham on Sea on Saturday 5th August.

Debbie Beech, Urszula Klepacka, Sophie Holder, Sian Collins, Sharon D’Arcy and Steph Hurne have joined forces to form the Regency Runners especially for the 5K event, which starts in a sea of bubbles and features four Bubble Stations along the route where cannons pump out even more coloured bubbles.

‘We wanted to do something together as a team and really wanted to support a local charity. The Bubble Rush seems like a really fun way to spend time together and raise money for Weston Hospicecare at the same time,’ says Steph. ‘Cancer has touched many people’s lives, and Weston Hospicecare’s services are really vital in supporting both the patients and their families through their journey, so we are keen to raise as much as we can to help.’

With just two weeks left until online registrations close for the Bubble Rush, the hospice is encouraging even more individuals, groups, families and clubs to sign up for this brilliant new event.

‘We are delighted that the Regency Runners are supporting the Bubble Rush and are sure they will have lots of bubbly fun,’ said Kelsey Dehaney, event fundraiser at Weston Hospicecare. ‘The Bubble Rush is family friendly and anyone can run, jog, walk or toddle their way through the foam. The most important thing is that everyone enjoys their time in the bubbles whilst helping to raise funds to support our local hospice!’

Places are still available at the Bubble Rush and you can register to take part by logging on to westonhospicecare.org.uk/bubble/ or calling 01934 423960.

    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.
