The Virtual Moonlight Beach Walk

September 12 @ 8:00 pm - October 31 @ 11:30 pm

The Moonlight Beach Walk is turning virtual and we’d love for you to join in the fun!

We can’t all get together in 2020 but this special adapted version of the Moonlight Beach Walk will see hundreds of women take on their 5k walk across Weston and beyond. The messaging behind the Moonlight Beach Walk of remembering loved ones is a hugely important one and we are determined to get that message out there in 2020!

Instead of walking through the night we are now asking you to complete your 5k walk at sunrise, sunset or anytime in-between. You’ll get to see your hometown or local beach in a brand new light with a stunning sunrise or sunset, whilst raising much needed funds for Weston Hospicecare with every step that you take.

Entry into the virtual event will get you:

  • Your exclusive customisable Moonlight T-shirt
  • Candle bag to dedicate to your loved one and a tea light placed in it to illuminate it the night after your special walk, acting as a wonderful way to start sharing stories and memories of your loved one
  • Access to an exclusive Facebook group with your fellow Moonlighters where you can share photos and stories of your special walk

So what are you waiting for? Sign up today. Throw on your Moonlight T-shirt, dig out your most outrageous, glittery and flashy outfit and walk for your hospice at a time where every penny counts more than it ever has before!

Or you can become a Moonlight Hero and donate to support our event. The Moonlight Beach Walk traditionally brings in over £30,000 every year, supporting local families going through one of the toughest times of their lives. It is the hope of the hospice that virtual event will help to bridge some of the gap in a year where we have faced unprecedented challenges, and you can be part of it!

    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, at no extra cost to you.

    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.
