Lighthouse does not charge for children to attend so that no child is unable to attend but we do need to pay for the marquees and other equipment that help to make Lighthouse such an exciting week. We are fortunate that all of our wonderful helpers kindly volunteer their time and do not get paid. In total it costs about £60 per child to run Lighthouse each year. These costs are totally funded by donations and fund raising - any donation you can give is greatly appreciated.

Using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, Lighthouse will receive an extra 25 pence from HMRC, helping your donation go further. This means that £60 can be turned into £75.00 - and it doesn't cost you a thing. If you are a higher rate tax payer you can also claim a rebate on your giving. If you wish to Gift Aid your donation, please print, fill out and send a gift aid form with your donation.
You need to be a United Kingdom tax payer, paying an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax equal to the tax that will be claimed on your donations. If this is the case, then please tick the Gift Aid box.
