Our happy Hub is in need of volunteer van drivers, and you could be the perfect fit!

Based on the Oldmixon trading estate in Weston-super-Mare, our Hub is the central location where all our donated goods are sorted. Customers take their donations into one of our many stores in Weston, Clevedon, Burnham or the surrounding area, and our fantastic team of drivers take the donations to the hub where they’re sorted before being distributed back to the shops.

Our existing team of volunteer drivers are incredible, but because the public are so generous with their donations, we’re in need of more drivers to pick everything up, including furniture. If you’re over 21, with a clean driving licence, able to drive a 3.5 tonne vehicle with tailgate, and able to spare 4 hours a week or more, we’d love to hear from you!

The hub is a fantastic working environment; the team are happy, friendly, and always laughing. Volunteering on one of our vans is a great way to meet lots of new people, since you’ll also be out and about visiting other stores and customers. Our ideal candidate needs to be a careful and considerate driver, with good customer service skills. They’ll also be reliable and flexible, and you should also be aware that the role will involve lots of lifting, bending, and carrying. Think of how fit you’ll get!

Full training will be given for this role, so if you’d like to get involved with life at Weston Hospicecare by giving something back to the local community, give us a call on 01934 423975, or take a look at our volunteering page for information.

    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.
