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.

FUNDRAISING THROUGH MUSIC FOR THE LAVENDER TOUCH

One Musical Director,  TWO songs, 50 singers, 50 individual recordings, several ‘zoom’ rehearsals and many technical challenges .

Gala Opera, who have had a close relationship with The Lavender Touch over many years, were unsure exactly when they would  be able to get back to entertaining the public in the way they love, during these uncertain times.   So they were looking for an enjoyable project which would raise money, but would allow them to come together, musically, but as a Society (at least virtually),  plus allowing some fun doing what they love.  They felt it should at the same time be a rewarding experience which the charity would benefit from in a time when fundraising, due to Covid, had ceased.   So Jeff Thomson, Producer/ Musical Director at GAOS set his mind to devising something that the Society members would enjoy.  i.e.  a virtual choir.

‘Around 50 Gala Opera members (past and present) took up the challenge and after a huge amount of work by all involved, the project is now complete.  Listen to,  not one, but,  two songs from the GAOS Virtual Choir of 2020.
