Gift Aid

This is a very important way for us to receive a higher amount into our funds at no extra cost to you.

To qualify for Gift Aid, you must pay an amount of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the tax that the charity reclaims on your donations in the appropriate tax year (currently 25p for each £1 given). Tax year is 6 April one year to 5 April the next.

When to get in touch

Please notify the Aln Valley Railway if you:

  • Want to cancel a Gift Aid declaration that you have previously made
  • Change your name or home address
  • No longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

Higher rate tax payers

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
