£500 of £500 raised

As you probably know, I am not the world’s most gifted athlete. In fact, you’re more likely to have seen me run for the toilet than any 10k races but that is all changing on Sunday 20th May.

I am running the Royal Berkshire 10k in support of African Adventures Foundation.

The charity supports 25 community projects in developing areas of Ghana, Kenya and Zanzibar, whose outreach services provide a free education to approximately 20,000 children.

I am aiming to raise £500, which will be enough to build a new classroom for a chosen project in Kenya, where it is common to have 50 children learning in a single room.

I have been training hard to make sure I beat any Kenyans also racing on 20th May – any donation, no matter how big or small, you’re able to make would be greatly appreciated.

To find out more about the work African Adventures Foundation does, please visit http://aaf.african-adventures.co.uk.

The running costs of the charity are footed by African Adventures Ltd, so 100% of all donations go straight towards the classroom build.

Gift Aid Declaration

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows African Adventures Foundation to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to African Adventures Foundation we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like African Adventures Foundation to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that African Adventures Foundation will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When African Adventures Foundation receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
