Home Collecting Boxes
The average box equals 1.5 hours of nursing care.
A home collecting box is an easy way to help raise money for the hospice. Use the box to collect your loose change and when it’s full either bring it into the hospice, one of our shops or count it and send a cheque to the hospice, stating that it was raised from your home collecting box. In these difficult times every penny counts and you can make a real difference to the lives of local people just by collecting your loose change. To request a Home Collecting Box call us now on 01785 270808
Gift Aid it!
You really can help us raise vital funds for our patients without it costing you a single penny!
What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a government scheme that promotes charitable giving. It enables charities like Katharine House Hospice to reclaim basic rate tax on every pound donated by UK taxpayers. So we are able to reclaim 25p in every £1 you donate. Furthermore, for every £10 you raise through sponsorship we could get an extra £2.50.
For example: Your £100 donation including Gift Aid equates to £125, please tick the box
How does Gift Aid work?
You can increase your donation at NO COST to you. If you are a UK taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donations if you pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax that is at least equal to the amount of tax that we and all other charities and Community Charity Sports Clubs will reclaim on your donation for that tax year.
We can even claim Gift Aid retrospectively, so if you are a supporter of Katharine House Hospice and have donated in the past, but have not yet completed a Gift Aid declaration, we can claim back the tax on all donations made in the last 4 years. It will also cover all future eligible donations, unless you tell us otherwise.
If all our tax-paying supporters made a Gift Aid declaration this would enable us to raise thousands of pounds for the Hospice - just from the donations they have already given.
How can I benefit?
Gift Aid could even make you better off! If you pay the higher rate of income tax, currently 40%, then you can claim tax relief for yourself.
What do I need to do?
It only takes a few moments of your time. It couldn’t be simpler!
