Coronavirus is affecting our most vulnerable neighbours. 

This Christmas we can help each other.

We’ve adapted our work to manage the uncertainty we face. However, fewer children and families can come to our parent support groups, after-school  or youth clubs because of the social distance measures required to provide a safe environment.  We are no longer able to generate the income to fund our services through enterprising events and hiring our facilities to partners and parents. We worry for those we can no longer reach. To many children, young people and families, we’re often the help that really matters. We are by their side, whatever challenges are thrown up in their way. It’s what’s woven us into the heart of our community for nearly 50 years. 

A joy shared is joy doubled

This Christmas, you can make a donation to the Winch as a gift to your family and friends.  Why not share your purpose and joy with those you love?

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like The Winch 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 The Winch 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 The Winch 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.
