The Winter Appeal 2023

Santa can't be there all year round, but with your help we can be.

Muhammad's Story

Muhammad is 11 years old, he has Lissencephaly. This includes severe development delays, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, and swallowing problems, along with sight and hearing impairments.

His condition means he has very complex needs that require 24/7 care and he can’t be left alone for a second.

He can for example have a seizure that lasts for more than five minutes and therefore needs round-the-clock care.

Muhammad uses a wheelchair making it hard to leave the house. If we want to go out as a family we rely on the help of the Hospice at Home team.

Often simple things like going to the park or going food shopping are almost impossible.

The care staff are friendly and ready to help. Delivering excellent quality of care.

Add Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Richard House 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 Richard House 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 Richard House 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.
