Donations

The Parish relies on donations from parishioners as its primary source of income. Collections are taken during each mass.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer and you make you donations under the UK Government's Gift Aid scheme, then the Blairs College Chapel Trust (a registered UK charity) is able to reclaim the tax you as a taxpayer have already paid on the money you donate. This means that the taxman adds approximately 25p to every pound you donate.

For this to happen, you need to either make cash donations in special Gift Aid envelopes, or sign a Gift Aid declaration and set up a standing order directly from your bank.
