£150 of £150 raised

Hi,

My name is Petr. Only in last few years, through self-development I realised how important it was to give in order to get. I would never think that giving could increase one’s confidence, well it certainly worked for me and maybe that is the type of activity I am supposed to do – helping myself through helping others in the first place, those who are less fortunate than me.

I think Lesotho is fairly poor country with lack of opportunities compared to the UK and the people in CHEF who I met personally informed me about the way they are supporting the businesses in there. I found it very rewarding as well as transparent. I was able to raise some money for charity twice before during my running events and believe that with your help, I can do it for this London to Brighton ride as well again. 100% for a good cause. Thank you for you contributions:)

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.
