£668 of £500 raised
Hi my name is Garrett Keown, Senior Head Chef of Restaurants at Harrods.
Food has always been a massive part of my life ever since I can remember. From picking blackberries & tomatoes in my garden when I was a child to fishing the local beach then cooking my catch. I have always had that connection with food and this is something I am now passing onto my children.
This is why the CHEF foundation appealed to me so much. Through the power of food it looks to support communities in Lesotho’s in Africa by directly funding small business start ups and education, giving the people of Lesotho a much better quality of life.
I will be supporting CHEF this year by participating in the London to Brighton bike ride. In order to reach my £400 target I will be taking part in some amazing food events we have organised (watch this space!), I am also holding a food raffle (meaning anyone who donates £20 or more, will automatically be entered for a chance to win a 3 course meal with canapés and a drink for 4 people cooked by myself), plus possibly a few more!
I am really looking forward to supporting this charity and I hope with your help we can raise some money for such a great cause.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

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 CHEF 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.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like CHEF 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 CHEF will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.
