Uphill football team set 1,500 mile running challenge to support hospice

Teammates from Uphill Castle Reserves FC have virtually teamed up to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

Between them, they will run 1,500 miles in four weeks. With 19 of them taking part, the plan is 15 will run 18 miles per week.

Adam Filer, who plays for the team, says: “We’re trying to raise £1,500 for Weston Hospicecare by running 1,500 miles in four weeks.

“We are a great club and want to try and help as much as we can.

“The local hospice (Weston Hospicecare) is a great charity and do incredible work for people who really need it.

“We all know people that have counted on this hospice or will do in the future.”

It’s also giving the footballers a chance to maintain fitness while football is postponed due to the pandemic.

Adam continues: “We’re also doing this to help the players who are struggling indoors to keep on top of fitness and stay mentally well.”

    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.
