Got a fundraising idea or want some inspiration?

So you want to put your fundraising idea into practice? Well our friendly community fundraisers are here to help. Whether your planning a sponsored barbecue or a bonkers, super-long, cycle or run your hospice’s fundraising team are on hand to help.

If in need of a little inspiration, here’s just some ideas (Please make sure you are following the latest government guidelines for social distancing)…

  • Sponsored walk/cycle to work for a week instead of using the car
  • Park runs and walks – why not encourage a group of friends or colleagues to get fit and support the hospice?
  • Host a stand-up paddle board contest
  • Host a tennis tournament
  • Auction of promises – Could you wash someone’s car? Help with their garden? Walk their dog? In exchange for a donation to the hospice?
  • Host a tennis tournament
  • Put on a bake sale
  • Sell plants and join the Virtual Open Gardens community
  • Create a book club
  • Take part in a head or beard shave
  • Pub sport Olympics – compete in a tournament of snooker, pool, darts and skittles
  • Host a quiz night
  • Hold a cookery class series – did you know you could do this virtually?
  • Dress down day at work
  • Get together with family and friends to make tote bags to sell for the hospice (we can send you our logos!)
  • Hold a treasure hunt
  • Organise a garage sale
  • Ask your favourite restaurant if they would donate a night worth of profit to the hospice

    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.
