Gift Aid: Ensure your sponsors Gift Aid their donation if they are able. This means that we can claim back 25p for every £1 given, at no extra cost to the individual. Simply ask them to read the Gift Aid information on your SANE sponsorship form or JustGiving page and tick the Gift Aid box if applicable.
