A brand new family fun day and fundraising event sponsored by Nightingale Removals and Storage Limited will take place this Saturday (15 September) in aid of Weston Hospicecare for the first time.

The inaugural It’s a Hospice Knockout fundraiser will debut at Clarence Park this Saturday 15 September from 12pm promising plenty of fun for all.

The event will see teams from all over the community go head-to-head in the games in a bid to become the first It’s a Hospice Knockout’ champion. There will also be stalls, games, face-painting and many more exciting activities for the spectators to enjoy.

Nightingale Group owner Richard Nightingale said: “Weston Hospicecare cares for people with life-limiting illnesses and their loved ones, maximising their quality of life and assisting with their symptoms to make their moments together as special as they can be.

“The care they provide is free of charge and they rely on the local community for donations in order to continue to provide their services.

“I cannot speak highly enough about their efforts and the Nightingale Group is proud to contribute to this much-valued community asset. I’m sure that ‘It’s a Hospice Knockout’ will be a wonderful fun-filled day, so please come along and help us raise funds for a very worthy cause.”

Weston Hospicecare’s Director of Fundraising and Communications Alison Sopp said the hospice greatly appreciates the support from the Nightingale Group for the event.

She said: “We are extremely grateful to Richard Nightingale and the Nightingale Group for sponsoring our very first It’s a Hospice Knockout.

“It’s going to be a fantastic day for the teams taking part, and for everyone who wishes to come down and watch the teams take on all sorts of obstacles and enjoy the Fun Day on Saturday.

“The hospice relies on the support from the community to ensure that we can continue to provide free care for people living with a life-limiting illness.”

Teams can still enter for the event and more information about how to sign up can be found on https://www.westonhospicecare.org.uk/knockout/. Admission to the fun day for spectators will cost £1 as a donation to the hospice on the gate.

    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.
