To provide practical information for participants so that they
are able to understand the benefits of income they could generate
from Gift Aid and how to go about registering for and claiming Gift

Gift Aid enables charities to reclaim the tax paid on donations

for and claiming Gift Aid in five simple steps, and it will also
