    Reclaim Gift Aid

    Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Lavender Touch to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Lavender Touch we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.We need name, address and postcode to claim the Gift Aid


    By ticking the “Yes” box, I agree I would like Lavender Touch 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 Lavender Touch 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 Lavender Touch 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.

Helping to raise funds to treat those dealing with the cancer and the side effects associated with its treatment

Welcome to The Lavender Touch events page. As a charity, we hold two main events each year:

In spring, we have our ‘Wear Lavender to Work’ day, where we encourage people in the Borders to donate £1 to wear Lavender in the workplace. Over 100 businesses take part each year, and some individuals even like to get involved by selling purple cakes and wearing purple rosettes.

There’s also our annual dinner, dance and auction, which usually takes place around Halloween and has everyone up on the dancefloor. Our chosen auctioneer for the night is also there to auction a wide variety of items – which have previously included anything from salmon fishing to car maintenance!

Due to the small nature of our team (made up of just four unpaid trustees), these are the only events we organise ourselves. However, we do encourage others to get involved with their own events to help people living through cancer and the side effects of its treatment.

How you can get involved

We truly appreciate everyone who supports these events every year, and whilst we do understand that time can be limited, we’d love it if you could find a way to get involved – why not check out our fundraising page to see what else is going on in your area?

Alternatively, you could start your very own fundraising event. We’ll endeavour to do our utmost to help you promote your event via our Facebook page – and on here.

Natural products developed by clinical aromatherapists, and specially designed to help you or a loved one deal with the side effects of cancer and its treatment.
