What is Gift Aid*?

Gift Aid allows us to reclaim the tax that you have already paid on your donations.

This means that, if you are a UK tax payer, your donation can increase by 25% at no extra cost to you. For every £1 you give, we can reclaim 25p.

Direct debit / Standing order

If you wish to make a regular donation, you can set up a direct debit or standing order. This can be monthly, quarterly or annually and you can specify when you want the amount to be taken from your bank account.


Leaving a legacy?

Leaving a gift in your will to our charitable fund is a wonderful way for your generosity to last beyond your lifetime. This could either be a fixed amount or could be part of the residue of your estate.

If you would like to do this, please contact the Charitable Funds Accountant when making or amending your will. Our team work with solicitors around bequests to ensure that the donor’s wishes are carried out.


Making a gift in memory

Charitable gifts instead of flowers
At the time of a funeral, many people prefer to ask relatives and friends to make a donation to a charitable cause in place of flowers.


Donating to a charitable fund, station or community first responder group

Charitable donors can specify to support our General Charitable Fund or a particular fund, ambulance station or community first responder (CFR) group which has a special relevance to them or that of a friend or relative.
