The Glengoyne Lodge Appeal

Help us finish the redevelopment of Glengoyne Lodge – and provide a centre that’s fully accessible for disabled young people. We’re so close to completion now – we just need a little more support!

What is this project about?

More than two years ago we set out to redevelop our outdoor centre because it no longer met the care needs of the young people we support. We wanted to make sure the building wasn’t a barrier to any young person getting fully involved in our activities.

We managed to raise £300,000 and commence the build which is now in progress. However we haven’t raised everything and we need another £60,000 to finish the project and be able to open the doors to young people once again.

The building is one of the only centres for short breaks for young people with disabilities so they can take part in adventurous activities, grow in confidence and gain independence and at the same time provide much needed respite to carers and families.

We have already raised enough money to complete the initial construction of the new building, but now we need a final £60,000 to fully refurbish the interior and fit the building out with kitchen, bathrooms and sleeping accommodation. Any contributions in kind towards these items would be hugely appreciated, or donations towards the final fundraising total would make a huge difference.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Glasgow Disabled Scouts 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 Glasgow Disabled Scouts 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 Glasgow Disabled Scouts 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.
