Another charity applies Gift Aid to shop donations
St Giles Hospice has become the latest charity to apply Gift Aid to donations to its charity shops, in a move that it believes will substantially increase revenues.
Once donors have signed up, they will be sent a card that can be shown each time they donate in order to activate Gift Aid.
In November 2006, Sue Ryder Care in become the first UK charity to claim Gift Aid on donated charity-shop goods. PDSA, Help the Aged and the British Heart Foundation have also introduced the practice.
