Do you have some shares under the value of £500 that are sitting in a drawer earning no income or growth?
Donating your shares to The Befriending Scheme is a simple and tax efficient way to help us and you do not have to pay capital gains tax on the disposal of the shares.
Please contact ShareGift on 02079303737 (quoting The Befriending Scheme) who will help you with donating the shares to us.
Do you have an old car that you want to scrap but don’t want the hassle of disposing of it.
We are asking the public who are considering scrapping their old cars to donate them to Giveacar as a novel way of raising funds.
Unwanted cars are collected free-of-charge by Giveacar and either sold through an online auction, or disposed of in an environmentally friendly way at an Authorised Treatment Facility. Proceeds from the sale are donated to a charity of the donor’s choice, with ‘bangers’ that are scrapped still netting between £35 and £45 for the chosen cause.
To donate your old car to us please call 0207 736 4242 or log on to http://giveacar.co.uk/charities/search?Title=befriending
Leaving a gift in your will is the ultimate long term gesture. Making a will and leaving something to TBS isn’t about death, it’s about life and it will make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people. Many people like to have a bench or similar to remember a loved one, why not consider funding a vulnerable person to attend TBS groups and enjoy social activities & friendship year round. We are happy to discuss individual ideas you may have.
Free Wills month runs in October and March and offers a scheme for people aged 55 and over to write a will, free of charge with the help of participating solicitors. New legislation has also been introduced to inspire charitable giving. The new rules state that anybody leaving 10 per cent of their estate to charity will get a reduced rate of income tax. To find a solicitor to help with writing your will visit www.search4solicitors.com to download a codicil or pledge form visit www.charitychoice.co.uk/gifts-in-wills
