Why Join A Friends Group?

As volunteers, our Friends groups organise their own events and activities, which are all supported by the hospice’s community fundraisers.

They arrange many successful events including coffee mornings, breakfasts, Christmas fairs, summer fetes, quiz nights, fashion shows and much more. They are always there to lend a helping hand and are vitally important to the hospice.

By joining a Friends group, you can:

  • Be actively involved in your local community;
  • Make new friends and have fun;
  • Develop skills in fundraising and event organisation; and
  • Help make a difference to local people with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

We have several Friends groups across the area in Blagdon, Burnham-on-Sea, Congresbury, Hutton, Kewstoke, Wrington, Worlebury, Wedmore and now our newest group in Cheddar.

If you are interested in joining or starting a Friends group, please contact the fundraising team on 01934 423900 or email us.

Whether you have been personally touched by the work we do or just want to support a great cause, there are lots of ways you can help!

    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.
