On Saturday, 29th April, from 2-6 p.m., the Weston Hospicecare Kewstoke and Worlebury Friends Group will be hosting its Summer Seasons Fashion Show at the Commodore Hotel in Sand Bay.
‘We’ve hosted several fashion shows before, and we really enjoy surprising people, who might not expect to see such high quality fashion pieces, all of which have come from Weston Hospicecare charity shops,’ said Sue Daniel, who is part of the Kewstoke and Worlebury Friends Group. ‘This luxurious afternoon of fashion, shopping and afternoon tea will help us raise much-needed funds for Weston Hospicecare.’
Weston Hospicecare is the local charity providing specialist palliative care to local people affected by life-limiting illnesses. To provide this care and support to hundreds of local people, the hospice relies on support from the community (including the various Friends Groups) and sales from donations made to its shops to help raise more than £2.7 million each year.
‘We’re so grateful to those who donate such wonderful items to our shops and everyone who helps to make these events a success,’ said Sue Harding, community fundraiser. ‘Without that support and the wonderful efforts from those in our Friends Groups, we wouldn’t be able to have events such as this, which help fund the care we provide. If your wardrobe could do with a revamp, or if you’re just interested in coming along for a fun-filled Saturday afternoon, we hope you’ll join us and enjoy the chance to comb the rails to nab that perfect ensemble!’
The Commodore Hotel, which is set in tranquil Sand Bay near the beach, has generously donated the space its premises free of charge.
Tickets to the event, which cost just £10 each and include the afternoon tea, are available from Sue, who can be reached on 07760 377 200, or from Chris Smith, who can be reached on 07751 375109.

    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.
