Foodbank

Introduction

GLMCC run a community Foodbank three times a week for those who are in need. The Foodbank operates on a referral basis only and is registered with over 30 frontline support agencies. Over 6000 people have used the service since it was set up.

How does it work?

GLMCC will issue food vouchers to local organisations. They act as referral partners and give the vouchers to people whom they consider need food. The people then come to the Foodban where they exchange their voucher for food.

GLMCC will help anybody who needs support; the old, single people, young people & families from all backgrounds, religious beliefs and ethnic origins, without prejudice, GLMCC aims to treat everyone fairly & with dignity.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Green Lane Masjid to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Green Lane Masjid we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Green Lane Masjid to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Green Lane Masjid will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Green Lane Masjid receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
