Gift Aid
If you are a UK taxpayer and make a Gift Aid declaration, this makes all your donations worth much more as we can currently claim an additional 25% from the taxman. This makes a £10 donation worth £12.50, at no additional cost to you.

You need only fill in one form, which you can download by clicking the button below, or obtain from The Ark by emailing us at
