Gift Aid Appeal for Giving Tuesday

Give the gift of Gift Aid this Giving Tuesday, and turn 2021 into a year of hope.

Last year, Lepra’s Gift Aid claim was in excess of £104,000, which highlights just how vital maximising this scheme is.

For every £1 you donate, Lepra is able to claim an extra 25p back from HMRC, so long as you pay the basic rate of tax.  Better still is the fact that we can claim this retrospectively on all the wonderful donations you have made over the last 4 years!

Please complete and return our online Gift Aid declaration form as soon as possible. Our dedicated team will do the rest.
