The tax the parish can reclaim from HMRC is an important source of income and we would like to encourage any taxpayers who do not currently make their offering under Gift Aid to consider doing so.
It is the best way of increasing your offering without it costing you more, since currently, the government will increase each £1 of your personal offering by a further 25p.
For the parish to reclaim the tax on your offering, you, the taxpayer, need to make a Gift Aid declaration and we, the parish, need to have a record of the date and amount of your offerings. Offerings can be by standing order, cheque or cash in a numbered offertory envelope.
Your Gift Aid Declaration will cover all donations recorded by the parish. You will find Gift Aid declaration forms at the back of church. When you have completed the form, please hand it either to the Parish Priest or drop it through the Presbytery letterbox.
Please be assured that the administration of Gift Aid is completely confidential.
Thank you for your continuing support. It is very much appreciated.
