Hi Everyone,

I am still finalizing bits and pieces from the Northern Fish-in and we are now on with the next and probably most important part, post fish-in.

We have had an email from Pat with relation to the cheques that were handed in for the event, because there were so many from different sources, it is possible to re-claim 28p from the Inland Revenue for every pound that was donated. This is quite an amount when you take into account that nearly 3,000 was in cheques.

The email reads:

I note there are some quite sizeable personal donations
which would appear to be sponsorship. If we could identify the donors from
the sponsor forms there is a possibility that we could approach them to ask
if they would consider 'gift aiding' their donations which would enable us
to reclaim 28p in from the Inland revenue, thus boosting your total for
the event even further.


Could anyone who paid their sponsorship monies, event or raffle ticket monies or made a donation by cheque please telephone Yvette at Macmillan Cancer Relief, Leeds and she will take a few details to make this possible.
Her telephone number is 0113 2064082 and please mention the event.

Thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

If you can phone during office hours then they'll be someone there. Ask for Yvette and she'll sort you out, icon_smile_wink.gif

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your responses, I have now put up an online 'Gift Aid' request form that sends your request to Yvette so that she can print it off from her end and deal with it,

http://www.maggotdrowning.com/fishin/giftaid.htm

If you want to pass this link around to others that you may know of then please do so, alternatively if they are not online, print the page off and ask them to fill the details in and post it to Yvette at the address on the top of the page.

Thanks, Dave


(Ps this form can be modified for future Macmillan Fish-ins if anyone wants to use it, please let me know)

Just bringing this back to the top,

Yvette has received quite a few requests and is in the middle of processing them, the more the merrier.
Just think for every 10 cheque that was handed in Macmillan can claim back 2.80 from the tax man but it needs your permissin to do so icon_smile.gif

If you haven't filled the Gift Aid form in yet please do so, and if you know of someone who paid their sponsorships by cheque and are not on the 'net, pleae print them a page to send off,

Many thanks,

Dave
