Matts 1000 Miles for Stoke on Trent

Matts 1000 Miles for Stoke on Trent

Matt Crompton is running 1000 miles during 2018 to raise awareness of sudden cardiac arrest and to raise money for a number of community defibrillators for Stoke On Trent, starting with a defibrillator for Etruria.

100,000 people a year die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), 630 of these are people under the age of 35 and 270 of them are children in schools. It is the UK’s biggest killer. By making defibrillators accessible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, this figure can be reduced. Defibrillation within the first 3 minutes of an SCA can increase a patient’s chance of survival by upwards of 80%.

As part of running a minimum of 20 miles per week Matt will compete in a number of events throughout the year, from 10k events, a hand full of half marathons including the Potters Arf and the Stoke Festival of Running, and even as far as an ultra run where Matt will be running as far as he can between dawn and dusk at the end of the year. The year will begin at Hanley Parkrun on New Years day, and Matts first big event is the Kidsgrove 10k on the 21st Jan.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows AEDdonate to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to AEDdonate we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you. Gift Aid is claimed by AEDdonate goes towards the running costs of our Charity.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like AEDdonate 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 AEDdonate 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 AEDdonate 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.
