It really helps boost our charity's income and means we can help schools and communities enjoy more activities. For every £1 you give, our charity will get £1.25 – that's a superboost!
As a thank you, for every Gift Aid ticket you buy, we'll give you a free £1.36 voucher to spend in the café or shop.
