Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve already run my event, where do I pay in the money?
Please do not send any cash through the post. Whenever you send money to Theirworld, please enclose one of our Money Return Forms so we can keep a record of the money you have raised for us. The best way to send us the money is through a cheque or postal order made out to Theirworld.
Theirworld is entitled to apply for Gift Aid (reclaim tax) on all donations received from UK taxpayers. You will need to tick the box on your completed Sponsorship Forms and send copies of all sponsorship forms to Theirworld for us to be able to claim the Gift Aid.
If people are donating to you online please remind them to select “I am donating my own money” in the Gift Aid section.
Forward any sponsorship monies and collection slips to:
20 Primrose Street
If you are sending a contribution, please contact us so we are on the lookout for your donation.
We will send you an acknowledgement any donation we receive from you.
How do I find out more about Gift Aid?
If you are a UK taxpayer, every gift you make to Theirworld - whatever its value - could be worth more at no extra cost to you just by choosing to Gift Aid it. HM Revenue and Customs will add an extra 25p to every £1 you give to Theirworld.
Gift Aid is a government initiative that allows donations given to charity to be tax-effective. As soon as you give your permission by completing a Gift Aid declaration, we can claim the tax back on your donation. This means that a £10 donation will be worth £12.50 and for every £50 gift we will actually receive £62.50.
Find out more about Gift Aid here, including details on what donations are eligible for Gift Aid.
Are there any other legal considerations about fundraising?
Due to the wide range of activities that fundraising includes, there are an array of laws that can apply. The Institute of Fundraising produces Codes of Fundraising Practice to help charities ensure that their fundraising activities are legal and carried out to the highest standards.
Good luck and have fun!
“There is that incredible sense of achievement. If you are thinking of taking on an adventure to support Theirworld, I'd say give it a go. It's fun!”
