After a booming summer we’re thrilled to be giving £8,440 ($9.3k) to each charity, that’s £25,320 ($28k) in total from the last three months of ticket sales!

How UK charities can claim Gift Aid on donations with Ticket Tailor

If you’ve ever sponsored someone in a charity sport event, it’s likely you’ve been asked whether or not you want to add Gift Aid to your donation. But what exactly is Gift Aid?
