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.

Donation Total: £2.00 One Time

Contrary to what people imagine, we do not receive any funding or grants to pay for the service we provide within the community, the Macmillan Unit, The Renal Unit or the Margaret Kerr unit…….we do it all ourselves.  A small charity paying for a big service!  We will give into the thousands of treatments annually.

We at Lavender Touch have to find in excess of £80,000 per year to offer Border folk,  and their carers, Lavender Touch therapy treatments.    The four Trustees, who are responsible for the charity and finding the money, do this VOLUNTARILY  and DO NOT get paid.  Two of them, Jan and Sheila have been doing this since they started the service over 16 years ago.

We really need your help.

Would you consider giving a regular amount to help us?  Doesn’t matter how much – every little helps.    This can be done in order to help with the continuation of our service, or as an acknowledgement of the support, we may have given to a friend or relative.   A mention of this can be made below if you so wish.

Imagine, next time you spot one of our Lavender Touch Therapists around the BGH or in the community in the Borders, you could be proud to think that your money is going to pay for what they do with the help they are giving those living with cancer in the Scottish Borders.

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.
