In response to enquiries from parishioners, and for easy access, we are putting copies of two key forms online on this page.
The Standing Order ‘form’ enables you to gather all the information you need in one place, prior to either setting up payment online or in your local branch.
The second form enables you to Gift Aid any donation you give either by standing order or envelope. Gift Aiding makes a big difference, allowing us to claim the basic rate of tax on contributions received. It means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give. When you complete a Gift Aid form, you are not committing to paying a specific amount every week/month, you are just authorising the Diocese to reclaim tax on whatever you do give. You can find out more about Gift Aid here on the GOV.UK website.
When you give under Gift Aid, you will be given a number, and all transactions are recorded against that number. The Parish Secretary and the Chair of the Finance Committee, who are responsible to the Diocese for reporting figures, are the only two people who see the detail.
Printing off and completing this form will give you all the information you require to set up a standing order, either by visiting your branch, or completing a request online.
A standing order (or a standing instruction) is an instruction a bank account holder (“the payer”) gives to his or her bank to pay a set amount at regular intervals to another’s (“the payee’s”) account. The instruction is sometimes known as a banker’s order. (Source: Wikipedia).
Click on the above link to download and complete a copy of the Gift Aid Declaration. You will then need to return it to the parish office, either directly, or via one of the volunteers at the information point after the weekend Masses at church.
If you are posting your Gift Aid form in, the address is: Parish Secretary, Our Lady and St Patrick RC Church, Glendaragh Road, TEIGNMOUTH, Devon TQ14 8PH
Both these forms are also available in hard-copy from the volunteers at the ‘Funding the Mission’ information points at each of our three churches, after the weekend Masses.
