Gift Aid is a scheme that allows charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, which means your donations will be worth 25% more to us at no extra cost to you. If you Gift Aid your donations we can claim back from the government 25p for every £1 you donate to the British Heart Foundation.
This additional income really does make a big difference, so please don't forget to Gift Aid donations if you are a UK tax payer.
Gifts in Wills ensure our unique and vital support can continue for many years to come. Create a legacy of opportunity and hope for future generations across the UK.
You may not have sat down and considered writing your Will. However, if you have a family and loved ones, this is a good opportunity to take a few moments out of our busy lives to think about it. At The Enterprise Club, without the wonderful gifts in Wills we receive each year, we wouldn't be able to help as many disabled people as we do today. These gifts enable us to continue developing new innovative services to meet the needs of tomorrow's disabled people who we have yet to meet.
A share of your estate. After you have provided for your loved ones, you can leave a share of what remains to charity. This is known as a ‘residuary gift’.
A cash gift. This is when you leave an exact sum of money to us. It's known as a 'pecuniary gift'.
A specific gift. Over the years we've received everything from a stream to antique jewellery.
A gift in trust. You can leave a gift for someone to use over a period of time. When the time has ended, the gift can be passed on to other recipients, such as a charity.
We receive all kinds of gifts in people’s Wills, and we’re grateful for all types of support. Speak to your solicitor if you’re interested in leaving an alternative type of gift. If you would like your gift to be spent in a specific way, perhaps towards a specific event or equipment type please do get in touch with us. You don’t have to be rich and famous to make a contribution that can make a difference, leaving a gift could also help reduce the inheritance tax on your estate. We can all do something amazing for the world, by remembering our favourite cause when making a Will.
The Enterprise Club is a fast growing organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people with physical and learning disabilities. It takes a great deal of organisation, planning, motivation, dedication and above all team work to be able to keep the charity running.
Volunteers are a vital ingredient in the day-to-day running of the services offered to our members. We have a variety of volunteering opportunities available and we need committed, reliable people to help us. We need help with the catering of light refreshments served to our members at the Day Centre, Handicraft Group and Social Evenings. Volunteers are required to work in our Coffee Bar on a Wednesday and Saturday evening. Our Transport Services relies on a team of volunteer mini bus drivers to drive the vehicles on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday evening. Most roles just need your time and enthusiasm.
If you feel you can be one of our heroes, please contact us by email or telephone the General Manager, Jill Simms on 024 76451066.
The charity has never received any statutory funding and it is necessary for the Trustees and the Management Committees to raise £90,000 per year to keep the premises, three accessible vehicles and activities operating. A year-long internal fund raising programme is organised and since the start of the economic down turn, it has been dramatically increased in an attempt to meet our needs and now includes at least 12 major Charity Collections, numerous Charity Bag Packs, Sponsored Events, a weekly Tote, Raffles, Black Out Cards, a Christmas Bazaar, Handicraft Sales and a Christmas Draw. However, the charity also has to rely on grants and donations to support the services provided, which are becoming increasingly difficult to secure in this uncertain climate.
We are sure you can think of many ways to help us fundraise too. See our News for recent fundraising details and our events page for upcoming fundraising events you can get involved in.
There are lots of ways you can fundraise too: from bake sales to sponsored silences, from bucket collections to bag packing in supermarkets. It’s important to understand the law and regulations in these areas before you begin: If in doubt, seek professional advice from your local Citizens Advice Bureau.
