The Government operates a scheme called Gift Aid that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax on every pound donated.

For example, if you donate £10 to Penny Brohn UK then HMRC will give us £2.50 for a total donation of £12.50.

If you donate £100 we will actually receive, with Gift Aid, £125.

Giving under Gift Aid simply means more money to run more courses, to offer more services and to support more people to live well with the impact of cancer.
