Gift Aid

Make your donations worth 25% more!

RE:SOURCE supports Cornish healthcare charity Cornwall Hospice Care. This 24/7 charity provides specialist support to patients facing terminal illnesses and their families and carers. They do this at their two hospices at Mount Edgcumbe in St Austell and St Julia’s in Hayle, through their Neighbourhood Hubs and Open House community initiatives, in Cornwall’s acute hospital and where appropriate, in people’s own homes and in local care homes. The charity also runs a 24 hour advice line for other healthcare professionals.

If you are a UK tax payer, we can collect Gift Aid on the proceeds from your donation. This currently allows us to claim a further 25p on every £1 made from the items you donate now and in the future. So if we sell an item for £10 and you’re happy to donate those proceeds to RE:SOURCE, we can claim an additional £2.50.

In order for us to do this, you need to give us permission to act on your behalf by filling in a Gift Aid declaration form. There’s no cost to yourself and no need for you to do anything further. This money helps change lives locally so if you can Gift Aid it, please do. Many thanks.

If you have any queries please contact us for further information.
