If you’re a UK taxpayer, you can make your donation worth 25% more with no cost to yourself with Gift Aid.
The Gift Aid scheme allows you to increase the value of your donation by 25% at no extra cost to you. For example your £10 donation becomes £12.50 when we claim the Gift Aid from HMRC. We can only claim the tax on individual gifts and sponsorship donations made to RBF.
If unsure as to whether you have already pledged Gift Aid, just fill in the form online or download a copy and send to us. There is also the option to pledge Gift Aid by email. Get in touch to find out more.
I’m finding it really helpful. I sometimes go a long time without anyone to talk to and it’s very hard. I’m 94 and meeting new people is difficult, so check in and chat in my own home with a lovely lady to talk to is fantastic. I still manage to get to town to run my errands, although at my age I don’t run! But the casual conversations I have with shop keepers are nothing like the calls, which are much more personal and involved.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the help and support this charity has given us, before this I felt so hopeless and worried about the future, it has been a really tough, stressful year but I now have some sense of positivity that things will get easier and that wouldn’t have happened without RBF’s support.
When I approached the RBF, I felt hopeless and that I had no chance of ever paying off all my debts. I sent in my application asking for support with my council tax and energy bills, and the charity provided me with a grant to finally pay off these debts. Since receiving this support, I feel so happy and relieved.
