Through Gift Aid, we can claim an additional 25% on top of every donation you make, at no extra cost to you. That’s an extra 25p added to every £1 you donate, making a huge difference to us.
When you donate items, we can also claim Gift Aid when we sell them, either in our shops or online. So if you've not given consent yet, just ask a member of staff the next time you drop off your donations and they will be able to sign you up.
Last year, if all eligible donors had given consent to Gift Aid last year, we would have raised an extra £102,00! That amount could provide 3,400 hours of nursing care to seriously ill patients.
If you are eligible to Gift Aid and have donated in the past four years but not previously given consent, you can fill out our simple Gift Aid Declaration form.

Providing you're eligible to Gift Aid, the process is simple:
St Helena Hospice can now claim an extra 25% on your future donations, and any previous donations made in the last four years!
If you don't want to donate right now, but have donated to St Helena over the past 4 years, we can still claim Gift Aid on those donations by filling out this short form, if you're eligible.
For more information about Gift Aid, and to find out whether you're eligible, visit the Government website.
When you make a donation to St Helena Hospice, we are charged transactional fees by other companies, including fees for processing payments made to us, looking up addresses and validating bank account details.
We are very grateful to our donors who offer to offset some of these fees with a minor addition to their total amount. This is however completely optional and we are very grateful for your support whether or not you choose to contribute to processing fees.Close
We are able to claim an extra 25p on every £1 on your donation amount for no extra cost to you, as long as you are a UK tax payer; have paid enough income tax or capital gains tax in that tax year; and are donating your own money. If you pay less income tax and/or capital gains tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference.
