GiftAid generates £800 for scout funds

We received confirmation today that our most recent GiftAid claim, relating to subs payments made in the year ending 31st March 2008, has been accepted by HM Revenue & Customs. This has resulted in a payment direct to Group funds of a massive £800.27.

This highlights just how important it is that the Group maintains an up to date register of Gift Aid Declarations. If eligible, a parent will normally need only complete a declaration form once, as it may remain valid for six years.

If you are a parent of one of our beavers, cubs or scouts and can't remember whether you have filled in a Gift Aid form, please get in touch with David Brown, our treasurer, who will be able to check for you.
