When you make a donation to us, you can also go the extra mile and Gift Aid your donation. Not sure what that means? It’s simple; Gift Aid is a government scheme where charities like ourselves can earn a little extra from you donation, an extra 25% in fact! All it requires is for you to be a current UK tax payer and for you to expect to pay over the amount we will claim in tax this year.
As an example if you donate a two seater sofa to us that we manage to raise £50 from, just by Gift Aiding you could increase the overall value of your donation to £62.50.
