Please encourage your sponsors to sign up for the Gift Aid option; this enables us to increase your sponsor’s donations by 25% - for example, £50 of sponsorship will become £62.50 with gift aided donations.
Rotary need just their house number or house name plus postcode to claim the Gift Aid – we do not use this information for any other purpose.
How to submit the sponsorship money you have raised.
You can hand in your sponsorship money in on the day of the event or send your sponsorship money to us as soon as you can and within three weeks of the event to ensure we can claim the maximum eligible Gift Aid on your sponsor’s donations.
Once your sponsor’s donations have been collected please send along to Hythe and Waterside Rotary at the address below – NOT to your chosen charity.
As soon as all the walk sponsors donations have been received, we will apply for gift aid, consolidate all the proceeds and distribute it to all the nominated charities after deducting the agreed 25%.
The sponsorship money you collect will be shared; we will send 75% to your chosen charity, if you nominate one, and the rest to Rotary charities.
This process can take a number of weeks but we hope to have it completed by October.
When you have collected all your sponsorship money, send with the sponsor forms to Rotary at the following address:
Beaulieu Charity Walk,
c/o 2 Sherwood Way,
Please make cheques payable to Rotary Club of Hythe & Waterside Trust Fund.
You can also pay online by bank transfer to The Rotary Club of Hythe and Waterside Trust Account at HSBC bank
Sort Code 40-25-24 Account No. 51350226
Please ensure you reference ‘Charity Walk’ and your walk registration number.
If you have any questions regarding the walk or sponsorship, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Rotary Club of Hythe and Waterside Trust Fund is a registered charity. Charity Number 1032430
How Do Rotary Use Their Proportion of the Sponsorship money?
Hythe and Waterside Rotary has raised many thousands of pounds for local, national and international charities and deserving organisations. We are part of Rotary International, a worldwide organisation with 1.2 million Rotarians based in communities across the world; its volunteers meeting on a regular basis for friendship, fellowship and to plan projects that will benefit the lives of others.
