What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a scheme that allows charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, which means it will increase the value of your donation to us by 25% at no extra cost to you. If you Gift Aid your donated goods we can claim back from the Government a further 25p for every £1 you donate to us.

For Gift Aid to work you must have paid sufficient UK Income or Capital Gains Tax in that financial year to cover all your donations in the tax year.

If you would like to support us in this way, please let us know that you’d like to Gift Aid your donation, there is no need to do anything else.

When your items are sold, we’ll let you know how much you’ve helped us raise and confirm that you’re happy for us to treat the money as a Gift Aid donation. Then we can increase the value of your donated items, at no extra cost to you.

This additional income really does make a big difference, so please don’t forget to Gift Aid your donations if you are a UK tax payer.
