Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Heel & Toe Childrens Charity to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Heel & Toe Childrens Charity we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Heel & Toe Childrens Charity to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Heel & Toe Childrens Charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Heel & Toe Childrens Charity receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.

Erin’s Story

Erin was born at 31 weeks gestation. A 12 week scan showed Erin was suffering from Exomphalos. This is where there is a weakness of the baby’s abdominal wall where the umbilical cord joins it and meant that Erin required fetal medication in utero up until her birth, where she was intubated immediately as she did not breathe independently.

Erin only weighted 3lb 11oz. at 10 weeks old she had a tracheostomy and feeding tube fitted, and has also required 2 blood transfusions as well as surgery to close up a PDA (patent ductus arteriosus – heart condition). Erin was given the diagnosis of Charge Syndrome at 3 months old, as well as being hearing impaired. Due to her tracheostomy Erin is non-verbal.

Erin enjoys playing with musical toys and sensory toys that she is able to hold on to. She dislikes being placed on her tummy for any length of time.
