Firstly I would like to thank you all, on behalf of the Abbot and Community, for your continued support of the Abbey and its works.
Many of you will know that that HMRC have tightened the rules governing gift aid. Gift Aid is an important source of revenue to the Abbey and we want to make sure that we both maximise its benefits and adhere strictly to the new rules.
To this end I should be most grateful if you wish your donations, both past and present to be gift aided, that you have filled in a Gift Aid declaration form and returned it to the Bursar. These can be obtained from the Bursary or from Brother John, the guestmaster. It is important that we have your Christian name, surname and full address with postcode and that the information is up to date
I thank you for your attention and kindness in this matter.
