Gift Aid 
We cannot claim Gift Aid on a donation that you or a close family member make towards your event sponsorship as you are taking part in an event where Re-Cycle is contributing to your entry costs, so counts as a gift aid benefit. A close family member is defined as your spouse or civil partner, your parents, your siblings and grandchildren, as well as their spouses or civil partners. 

We recommend that you set up a Just Giving Re-Cycle fundraising page. Visit and click on the ‘Fundraise for Us’ button. When setting up your event or linking to an existing event, you must tick the box that asks “Is your charity contributing to the cost of your fundraising?” to ensure Gift Aid eligibility criteria are set up correctly for your event. 

If you are also going to use a paper sponsorship form to collect your donations then you need to download this sponsorship form as this includes the relevant gift aid statement: 

Donations made by people directly connected to you are not eligible for tax relief under the Gift Aid scheme. This includes spouses, civil partners, children, grandchildren, parents and siblings and the spouses and civil partners of any of the above. 

Please ensure they do not tick the Gift Aid boxes. For further information on Gift Aid, you can go to the HMRC website at or contact us.
