You can increase your donations with Gift Aid – Each year, the Gift Aid Scheme raises tens of thousands of pounds for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, helping to make your generous donations go even further.

If you are a UK tax-payer we can claim back the tax you have already paid on your donations.
The extra income comes straight from the Government, so you can increase your donations at no cost to yourself. The Charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 you give on or after 6 April 2008.

To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must be at least equal to the amount claimed by all Charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs donated to in the tax year. Paying Council Tax or VAT does not count as a tax paid to qualify for Gift Aid.
If you pay income tax at the higher rate, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment Tax Return if you want to receive the additional tax relief due to you.

Please contact the Charity Team on 0161 276 4522 for a Gift Aid form.

Let’s chat
