Gift Aid

Please consider using Gift Aid when sending your Membership Subscription, as it means The Northampton & Lamport Railway Preservation Society can recover a sum equal to the basic rate of income tax you paid, thus helping your donation go further. This means at a rate of 20% a £10 donation can be turned into £12.00, so long as donations are made through Gift Aid.

Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn’t cost you a thing!

To qualify for Gift Aid, what you pay in income tax or capital gains tax must equal or exceed the amount the charity will claim in the tax year.
If you are a higher rate tax payer you will also be able to claim a tax relief through your tax return.
