Weston Hospicecare’s Waterloo Street charity shop will reopen for trading this morning (Wednesday 19 August).

The shop is the eighth retail site to reopen after coronavirus restrictions forced the temporary closure of all Weston Hospicecare charity shops.

All shops closed for business at the start of lockdown in March 2020 and now eight hospice shops are open to boost income generation for the charity.

The hospice is working on plans to reopen the remaining shops as soon as it is safe to do so. Depending on the status of the coronavirus, the hospice will not hesitate close shops again to protect customers, staff and volunteers.

As things stand, the trading hours for hospice shops are the following:

Weston Waterloo Street, Weston Devonshire Road, Weston High Street, Weston Milton Road, Worle Fashion and Burnham-on-Sea Seafront, Monday-Saturday, 10am-4pm

Cheddar, Tuesday – Saturday, 10am-4pm

Yatton, Monday-Friday, 10am – 4pm

The hospice shops are not accepting donations at this time due to lack of storage.

All profits from sales will support the care given to people with life-limiting illnesses in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset and Sedgemoor so please do support our shops and remember to take your mandatory face masks to protect other customers and staff.

    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.
