Our shops play a huge role in raising the money we need to fund vital care for seriously ill children and their families. If you are a UK Tax Payer, Demelza can claim Gift Aid on the proceeds from the sale of your donated items, helping us generate additional income at no extra cost to you. For every £1 we make selling your donated goods, we can claim an additional 25p under  the Government’s Gift Aid scheme.


To sign up for Retail Gift Aid please visit your local Demelza charity shop or for any enquiries, please telephone 01795 503117.

If you are an existing Retail Gift Aid supporter, please note that we have updated our Terms and Conditions which you can view below.

If you have already registered for Retail Gift Aid, and need some more labels to donate your unwanted goods, please print the labels below, complete your details and attach them to your goods. Thank you.
