GIVE A LITTLE, HELP A LOT – BE A GIFT AID VISITOR

... UK taxpayers can make a massive difference to a charity like us

If you are a UK taxpayer paying for yourself and/or your family group to enter the site, you can choose to make a Gift Aid donation and the government allows us to reclaim the tax you’ve already paid at no cost to yourself – 25p for every £1 – it’s called a Gift Aid visit.

Please become a Gift Aid visitor. Just say ‘YES’ when you are asked at the Admissions Desk. Thank you!
Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust – Registered Charity number 292101
By saying ‘YES’ when asked if you wish to make a Gift Aid donation when you visit, you will be making the following declaration:
“I would like the Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust to treat my donation as a gift aid donation. I confirm that I have paid an amount of UK income tax or capital gains tax at least equal to the tax the charity reclaims on my donation during the tax year”.

The small print ...

  • General admission tickets are valid for 12 months – pay once and visit as many times as you wish for free, for 12 months.
  • All tickets purchased online will be emailed with a reference number. Please bring this with you (either printed or on a smartphone) when you visit.
  • As part of the process to buy tickets, we will ask you for you name and address. This is to allow Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust to claim Gift Aid on your ticket (if applicable). Your information is only used for this purpose and will not be passed onto any third parties.
  • Please note, that your photo will be taken upon arrival to link to your ticket. We do this to ensure that tickets are assigned to the correct people when revisting.  Photos are only stored for the duration of your annual ticket and are then deleted in accordance with our Data Protection Policy.
  • What is Gift Aid? Gift Aid allows charities like us to reclaim tax (25p for every £1) from the government on your donations. If you are a UK taxpayer, by opting to Gift Aid you enable us treat your payment as a donation, so each £1 you spend can do £1.25 of good.
