Community nurse Amanda Headford will take part in the Midnight Beach Walk this Friday with many of her peers to support a colleague who is being treated by Weston Hospicecare.

Alison Adams (pictured) is having treatment for pancreatic cancer that has spread to her lungs and she has worked alongside Amanda for four years as a community nurse.

Amanda will be joined by eight of her colleagues and says Alison is treasured by all.

She said: “Alison is a special lady who is cherished by all her colleagues. Alison asked us to sign up and it is a way of showing her how much she means to us all. This is something we can do for her in perhaps what we feel is an otherwise-hopeless situation.

“I shared Alison’s post on a closed Facebook group we have for rapid response staff and lots of people volunteered straight away so although many of us have had contact with Weston Hospicecare before, we all wanted to do the walk for Alison.

“Alison has been active on social media asking people to sign up and sharing our posts, especially the JustGiving page link.”

Time is running out for women to join Amanda by signing up for this year’s Weston Hospicecare Midnight Beach Walk this Friday, 7 September. To register, click here to visit our sign up page. Registration closes at 11.30pm today (Tuesday).

    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.
