St Edmund’s Gift Aid rebate for 2016-2017 came to £24,131.87. This is a wonderful amount which really helps our parish’s finances, so a heartfelt thank you to those who gift aid already. We do believe though that there are many parishioners who are tax payers who haven’t yet signed up to this. Please think about it. Download a form HERE.
We still have many boxes of envelopes that haven’t been collected. It may be that you give your offering by Standing Order so don’t need your envelopes for the weekly collection but each box does contain special envelopes for some second collections and for your Easter and Christmas offering to the priests. These do need to be used for the church to collect the gift aid on these occasions.
