No child should feel abandoned at Christmas. That's where you come in

Poppy felt trapped, frightened and alone. She had been forced to take on adult responsibilities, at such a young age, and she had no one to ask for help.  

Poppy was just seven years old when she and her Mum were moved into emergency accommodation. They had been homeless for seven months. She had witnessed her Mum suffer domestic violence.

Poppy was trying to carry responsibilities that were far beyond her capability, caring for her Mum who had a chronic illness.

Poppy was unable to get to school and became isolated from friends.

After a few weeks they were moved to a hostel. This saw them sharing spaces with adults living with drug addiction. The move had made Poppy more vulnerable, not less.

In such a short space of time, everything she had known as home, her stability and her security, had disappeared.

By donating to Spurgeons you can help children like Poppy to rebuild their lives.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

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