A message from Karen Taylor, Director of Clinical Services

Right now, in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, our hard-working doctors, nurses and health care teams are delivering vital care throughout our community day and night.

In these exceptional times, we’ve had to close our doors to our day services and change the way we deliver care on our inpatient unit, to ensure we keep people safe. But our patients need us, and with the NHS stretched to capacity, the vulnerable in our community need our help more than ever.

We’ve had to focus our resources and adapt at speed; and our staff are going above and beyond to ensure Martlets keeps caring. People from across our organisation are retraining and giving up their weekends to support the safe running of our hospice site. In these unprecedented times we know our patients need us more than ever and we’re working round the clock to deliver this.

But we can only provide this essential care with the support of our community. Social distancing measures are vital, but this means we’ve had to cancel our fundraising events and close our shops. We rely on the generosity of local people for almost all of our funding, so these changes are a significant challenge.

With a special gift of £20, you could pay for a nurse’s travel today and help keep our essential services running.

Your gift will ensure that people like Jayne, facing advanced cancer, can still receive vital pain management at home from a visiting specialist nurse. And in helping Jayne, you’ll be supporting her husband Robert too, who knows he can call our phone hub day or night for advice.

Jayne and Robert

And Jayne and Robert are just two of the thousands of people we support every year.

We are Martlets and we’re proud to be here for everyone in Brighton, Hove and the Havens who needs our support. But with our shops unable to trade and our fundraising events cancelled, we simply will not be able to keep caring - unless you help us today.

We know we’re asking when things are hard for everyone. But please, give an emergency gift of £20, or whatever amount you can afford today

You can make your donation below and help Martlets keep caring.

Thank you.

Reclaim Gift Aid

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

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Martlets 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 Martlets 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 Martlets 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.
