Gift Aid bonus ends April.

Charities get to claim back the UK tax paid on money donated, so if a basic taxpayer gives £1 the charity gets £1.28.

The eagle eyed amongst you will have spotted they're reclaiming 3p per £1 donated more than the tax, as in 2008 when income tax was cut the govt. said charities could keep the higher amount until 5 April 2011.

So if you're planning to donate do it asap, and they get more.
