Gift Aid

You can now Gift Aid the goods you donate to sell in our shops.  If you are a UK taxpayer, you can complete a simple form and ensure that the Hospice can claim an extra 25p for every £1 that the goods raise when they are sold. That means a boost for 
St Leonard’s without any extra cost to you! We’ll give you a unique reference number that will go on every item that you give. Using this number, the Hospice shop will track the item, noting the selling price. The Hospice can then claim the Gift Aid on the selling price of the item.

It’s easy and very effective

The Gift Aid scheme is really simple for anyone who donates, and means that your donation is worth an extra 25 per cent to us. It’s easy to sign up – our staff will explain how it works. Then all you have to do is tell us your number, or leave your name and postcode when you bring us your items to sell. Last year the Hospice raised an additional  £46,892 through Retail Gift Aid.
