Gift Aid in our shops

Let the tax office help. If you Gift Aid your donation, you could help Ashgate Hospicecare even more! We can claim an extra 25p on every pound you give, helping your donation go further. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can Gift Aid your donation and any donations you make in the future or have made in the past 4 years. Gift Aid is reclaimed by Ashgate Hospicecare from the tax you pay for the current tax year. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.

Please notify us if you: want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.

Ashgate Hospicecare Shops is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ashgate Hospicecare and will charge a commission fee of 1% plus VAT.


Our agency agreement

Ashgate Hospicecare Shops (LTD) will act as my agent in selling the goods, from which a 1% commission fee + VAT will be deducted from the proceeds of the sale.

Any goods that are unsuitable for sale or goods that Ashgate Hospicecare shops are unable to sell will be recycled or disposed of and will not be returned.

Unsold goods will be disposed of.

The net proceeds from the sale of the goods will be donated to Ashgate Hospicecare.

It will not be necessary to write to donors to confirm the donations, provided that the total net proceeds from the sale of the goods so far in the tax year has not exceeded £1,000 but where they do, Ashgate Hospicecare will write to the donor to seek consent to those funds over and above the initial £1,000 being donated and will write with in-year updates as further goods are sold.
