It’s all hotting up in the Canine Partners community. Deborah’s swimming like mad, in readiness for her amazing swim across the Solent. Ken’s coming to work with so much lycra he’s barely recognisable. (It’s not just a fashion statement - he also owns a bike). Holly’s getting so excited by all the big bluebell walks she’s organising that she can hardly sit still. And runners all across the south of England are in training for the Bright10 in the autumn. So if you can run, then run. If cycling’s your thing, then by all means peddle like your life depends on it. If it’s swimming that floats your boat, then go and get in that pool. Basically the whole Canine Partners family is doing whatever they can to raise funds and get fit at the same time, all in celebration of the fact that this is our 25th anniversary year. Read more
Gift Aid – Make your donation go further at no extra cost to you!
Gift Aid is a simple scheme that enables us to claim an additional Basic Tax rate of 20%, thus 25p from every £1 donated by UK taxpayers. This means a £10 donation will be worth £12.50 to us, at no extra cost to you!
To qualify for Gift Aid, you must pay an amount of tax and/or capital gains tax at least equal to the amount to be reclaimed in a tax year. All we need is your name, address and your permission to Gift Aid your donations – please use the Gift Aid Declaration Form (PDF) or call us on 08456 580480.
Not many people know this… If you are a higher rate taxpayer you can also claim tax relief for yourself at 20% (i.e. the difference between the higher rate of tax at 40% and the basic rate at 20%) by including details of your donations on your Self Assessment form. Alternatively, you can donate this rebate directly to Canine Partners on the same form (using the code GAS75UG) and increase it further through Gift Aid.
If you are owed tax by the taxman, you can give your repayment to Canine Partners simply by filling in this form. It’s an easy way to make a donation – and you can use Gift Aid to increase the value of your gift.
