What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid helps your donation to have an even bigger positive impact – and at no cost to you. Gift Aid allows charities to reclaim tax from the government on your donations. If you are a UK tax payer, by opting to Gift Aid, each £1 you spend could be worth £1.25 to us. That extra 25% really does make a huge difference for us.

Under Gift Aid legislation, our admission ticket price qualifies as a charitable donation.
