Gift Aid

With the start of a new tax year in less than a fortnight, I am pleased to tell you that for those of you already registered for the weekly gift aid envelopes, your new sets for the 2019/20 tax year are now available for collection from the back of the Cathedral after mass. If you are a UK taxpayer and have not already signed up for gift aid in the parish, now is a very opportune moment to do so!  Gift aid is a government initiative whereby amounts you donate to the Cathedral can be uplifted by a further 25% at no additional cost to you.  So, if you give £10 today and gift aid your donation, the Cathedral will receive £12.50, ie: £10 from you, plus an additional £2.50 from the Government. Gift aid registration forms will be available after mass today for you to complete and return.  To help us keep a record of your donations, you can either request a set of weekly donation envelopes to use in the offertory collections, or, you could set up a standing order with the Cathedral.  Over the next two weeks, we will have registration forms, new envelope sets and standing order sign-up sheets available after mass. So, if you haven’t already done so, why don’t you sign up today?
