Supporting the Lions part

The Lions part is a registered charity, and we are dedicated to keeping as many of our events as possible free and open to all. We simply would not be able to do this without the help of our supporters and sponsors, to whom we are enormously grateful.

If you would like to make a donation, you can donate directly via our Charities Aid Foundation page. If you prefer to send a cheque, we would be very grateful if you would take a moment to print and fill out our Gift Aid declaration form (it will fit on a single sheet of paper). This enables us to claim a further 28p per pound of your donation from the government, and makes a great difference to our finances! If you prefer, you can make your declaration in a letter by including the wording of the declaration and your personal details. Please send the form/letter and your donation to the address on the form.

Notes about Gift Aid:

  1. In order for the Lions part to reclaim tax you must pay an amount of income tax or capital gains tax equal to the tax we reclaim on your donation (currently 28p for each £1 you give.)
  2. Remember to notify us if you no longer pay an amount of income tax or capital gains tax equal to the tax we reclaim.
  3. If you pay tax at the higher rate you may claim further tax relief in your self assessment tax return. This is the difference between the basic rate which the Lions part reclaims and the rate you actually pay and this is payable to you.
  4. If you are unsure whether your donations qualify for Gift Aid tax relief ask your local tax office for leaflet IR 65.
  5. Please notify us if you change your name or address.
