Hospice supporter offering ‘Rent a Runner’ service in exchange for donations

Blog

A Weston Hospicecare supporter is taking part in the charity’s Big Virtual Challenge to raise money for the charity.

Bjorn Edney from Bridgwater is raising money for the hospice. He’s taking on The Big Virtual Challenge’s 100 mile monster marathon. To help cover the distance he is offering his delivery services while he runs.

It’s been dubbed “Rent a Runner” by Bjorn himself who says “I take on the hard & sweaty runs, so you don’t have to!”

He continues “Some of you may be aware that Weston Hospicecare were there for our family friend James (Dex) and his family, providing vital end of life care and support in his final weeks prior to him sadly passing away in March 2019.

“Save your lungs, legs and joints and sit back and munch on your Dairy Milk with a bottle of bubbly, safe and happy in the knowledge I am out there running for you.

“It’s all for charity, so you can get an extra buzz knowing that your money goes to an awesome cause, Weston Hospicecare”.

Book a delivery by leaving a donation on his JustGiving page by clicking here.

The delivery service will end on 7 December which allows Bjorn to complete his challenge in the 30 days to secure his monster marathon medal.

A huge thanks from everyone at Weston Hospicecare, Bjorn!

    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.
