All monies donated are receved by the Diosecan Board of Finance, whom then forward them on to the relevant Parish Church PCC (Parochial Church Council.

The Gift Aid scheme is for gifts of money by individuals who pay UK tax. Gift Aid donations are regarded as having basic rate tax deducted by the donor. Charities or CASCs take your donation - which is money you've already paid tax on - and reclaim the basic rate tax from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) on its 'gross' equivalent - the amount before basic rate tax was deducted.

Basic rate tax is 25 per cent, so this means that if you give £10 using Gift Aid, it’s worth £12.50 to the charity.
