We want to say thank you for the generous donation of £400 by the Sun and Sector Royal Arch Chapter, part of the Freemasons of Workington. The Freemasons said: “We are pleased to be able to support this worthy local charity. Companions of the Chapter have family members who are being, or have been cared for by Hospice at Home West Cumbria and we value your service to our community.”
This donation will help us buy a tablet device to make completing Gift Aid declarations easier for people in our shops. Did you know if you’re a UK taxpayer Hospice at Home West Cumbria can reclaim 25p on every £1 you donate? By making the declaration process easier we can encourage more people to tick the box.
We must raise over £1M each year to continue to deliver and develop our vital and valued services to people and families from Maryport to Millom Last year Hospice at Home West Cumbria was able to claim £16,433 in Gift Aid and that extra funding makes a big difference to us.
