Ways of Giving to St Ann’s Parish                          November 2023


Donations to St Ann’s Parish are greatly appreciated.

Father Louis and the Finance Committee would like to say a big thank you to all parishioners and visitors who donate to St Ann’s Parish.


Donations with Gift Aid 

In the tax year 2022/23 our parish was able to claim back over £10,000 in Gift Aid from HMRC Tax Office.

This was only possible because parishioners had signed up to the Gift Aid scheme for their weekly or monthly donations.

Envelopes are available at the back of church for visitors who wish to Gift Aid a one-off donation or use the digital collection plate in the porch and gift aid your donation.

Anyone who has an income (wages, salary, pension or investment income), on which they are paying United Kingdom Income Tax, can Gift Aid their donations to St Ann’s by completing a simple form.

If you are a UK taxpayer, then donating with Gift Aid means that we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 received.

Signing up to Gift Aid will increase monies paid by the Government to the Diocese at no additional cost to individuals or to the parish.

For Gift Aided donations made either by Standing Order or Envelope the parish keeps a record of donations made to St Ann’s each year. This then forms the basis of the Diocesan claim to the Tax Office made on our behalf.

When donating to St Ann’s online or by using our Digital Collection Plate you can still choose to Gift Aid.


Standing Orders  

Donating by Standing Order is our preferred method as it reduces our costs and eases our parish administration, and

we would like to ask all parishioners to consider changing to Standing Order instead of envelope, cheque, or cash.


Contactless Donations

You will find our Digital Collection Plate Contactless Terminal in the porch. Just use your contactless debit/credit card or smart phone/ device to donate. Simply choose the amount you wish to donate and hold your card onto the reader. You can opt-in for Gift Aid to increase your donation by 25%.


Online Giving

An online donation page was set up during Covid to allow you to donate to the Parish. We would now prefer that any online donations are made using the system which links to our Digital Collection Plate, either by copying and pasting the following address or by using the following link


Any Cheques

should be made payable to St Ann’s Cheadle Hulme
