Gift Aid

Gift Aid with 4th Heswall

Our Scout Group heavily relies on the additional income generated from Gift Aid.

Gift Aid is the government scheme that gives 25 pence for every pound donated to us, which includes the membership fees (Subs) you pay for your Beaver, Cub or Sea Scout each term.

Completing our online Gift Aid declaration could not be any easier, simply click on the  OSM link below to opt in or out of the Gift Aid scheme. It doesn’t cost you a penny and it takes less than 20 seconds if you log into OSM and go to the Gift Aid section to opt in or out. Alternatively download the Declaration and Letter below, complete and email them to our Treasurer at

Please ensure the person that completes the Gift Aid declaration is the person that pays the Subs and they are a UK tax payer.

If the details in OSM are already correct, please click the button at the bottom of the page to confirm they are still correct.
