WAYS OF DONATING TO ST MARY’S CHURCH

If you are a UK tax payer you can simply fill in a Gift Aid form (available on the website or from the Parish Office). This means that we can claim back 25p on every £1 you donate at no extra cost to you.


DONATION BY CARD

If you would like to make a donation by card on our new machines it would be easier to do this before Mass so that big queues can be avoided after Mass. If you are a UK tax payer and would like the church to collect gift aid on your donations it is easy to fill in your details on the card machine. This is a one-off operation and all donations made on the same card after this will be automatically gift aided. You will be asked for your email address but this is just an added security measure to make sure that it is you using the card, and to give you a receipt for your records. Any information you give on these machines is only shared with HMRC and is under the General Data Protection Regulations.

THERE IS now a donation button on the first page of our website. Donations made this way can be gift aided
