Most of you are well aware of the recent refurbishment of Coniston Hall. We are currently raising funds for AET so that they can continue their work in and around Manchester. As a past resident, well-wisher or beneficiary of Coniston Hall, you will know that Coniston is a great place where you can feel at home in an environment of mutual concern and friendship. To keep Coniston going we need your financial help. Every penny contributed is a big Help!

If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid offers a simple way to increase the value of your gift to Coniston Hall by allowing the Charity to reclaim the tax on your gift.
What is it?
Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, the charity you are supporting will receive an extra 28 pence from the Inland Revenue. This means that a £10 Gift Aid donation, is worth £12.80 to the charity – imagine what a difference that could make to the charity you support, and it doesn’t cost you a thing. On top of this, higher rate taxpayers are eligible to reclaim as much as £23 from the taxman for every £100 donated to charity, by including details of their Gift Aid donations on their Self Assessment form.
How does it work?
Gift Aid is surprisingly easy to use. Gift Aid can apply to donations of any amount, large or small, by cash, cheque, postal order, direct debit, standing order, debit or credit card or even in a foreign currency (including the euro). If you are a UK taxpayer, all you have to do is give the Charity a simple Gift Aid declaration. What’s more – one single Gift Aid declaration can apply to all past donations you have made (since April 2000) and to all future donations you make.
