Gift Aid

Donating through Gift Aid means that 1st Shiremoor Scout Group can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give and it won’t cost you any extra.

You need to make a Gift Aid declaration for us to claim, this can be done via OSM, contact your leader and they can send you the link to complete the necessary form.

Your donations will qualify as long as they’re not more than 4 times what you have paid in tax in that tax year (6 April to 5 April). The tax could have been paid on income or capital gains. You must tell us if you stop paying enough tax.

We are an official collecting agent for crisp packets. Learn more about the scheme and what happens to your donated crisp packets:

Bring your empty and cleaned crisp packets along to section meetings with you, we will do the rest.
