The Inland Revenue allows charities to claim back income tax as a gift aid on cash and cheque donations from individuals who are UK taxpayers.
The tax is claimed back from the Inland Revenue at no extra cost to you – the donor – providing you have paid an amount of income/capital gains tax equal to the tax reclaimed on the donation.
The charity can only claim Gift Aid if the donor has provided their name and address, including postcode, and confirmed that they wish Gift Aid to be claimed on their donation.
To allow us to claim the extra 25% download and fill in our Gift Aid form and return it to the charitable team along with the donation and accompanying correspondence.
Leave a gift in your will

Donating to Our Hospitals Charity in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way to pay tribute to someone special and help a worthy cause.Ben Murphy, head of charity
However you choose to remember your loved one, we are here to support you in any way we can.
There are many ways to make a donation in memory:
- Make a donation in their name – Donate in the name of your loved one online or through the charity office. You may also wish to do a cheque presentation and hand over your donation to the staff or ward that cared for your loved one.
- Hold a collection at the funeral or memorial ceremony – Asking friends and family to make a donation in lieu of flowers is a meaningful way for everyone to make a contribution.
- Do your own fundraising or take part in an event or challenge – Organising an event in memory of your loved one is a great way to celebrate their life and raise money in their memory.
