Gift Aid


If you're a UK taxpayer and sign up for Gift Aid, your donations of goods for sale are worth an extra 25% to us when they're sold. You can pick up a leaflet to register for the scheme in any of our shops or download a copy to complete and present in store. Signing up is quick and easy, and you only need to do it once.

If just half of all donated bags were gift aided, this could mean an extra £100,000 towards our care*, which could provide six months of 24 hour specialist care in one of our In Patient rooms.


*Based on average figures for the year 1 April 2017 – 31 March 2018.


Gift Aid Eligibility

• You wish St Luke’s to claim tax on all donations you make in the future or have made in the past 4 years

• You are a UK taxpayer and understand that if you pay less Income Tax/Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year it is your responsibility to pay any difference

• You wish St Luke’s to act as your agent in selling the goods you have donated, at a rate of 1% commission + VAT

• You are not acting as a business in bringing goods in for sale to any shops belonging to St Luke’s

It is a requirement of HMRC that before St Luke’s makes any Gift Aid claim we write to you to inform you of the money raised from the sale of your donations (once sufficient items have been sold). You can then choose to retain or donate these proceeds to St Luke’s. To claim back funds raised you must contact St Luke’s in writing within 21 days of the date of this letter. If you have provided an email address, we will inform you by email, but if the email fails we will need to inform you by post.

Your details will be shared with HMRC in order to enable us to make a Gift Aid claim.

Any goods not sold will be recycled and cannot be returned. We reserve the right to terminate this agreement at any time.
