To claim Gift Aid your sponsors must be UK tax payers and they will need to record their home address, postcode, donation amount and tick the Gift Aid box on your sponsor form or fundraising page.
How do the funds I have raised make a difference?
As a charity we are reliant on the generosity of our supporters. Without the vital donations from individuals, trusts and foundations, charities, corporations and the government we would simply not be able to provide life-changing treatment and support for veterans with mental health problems.
Every year more than 2,000 veterans take the first step to seeking help by reaching out to us. Our specialist treatment helps rebuild lives, brings families back together and gives veterans a future again.
Check out our ‘How You Help’ page to see how the funds you raise help change lives.
