What does a tenner buy these days? A couple of supermarket meal deals, a nice bottle of red? The answer is, it doesn’t go a long way. However a regular £10 donation to St. Margaret’s Hospice every pay day would go far. Over a year a £10 donation would pay for a home visit from one of our specialist nurses assisting with pain control.

How can companies and their employees help?

We’re asking employers in Somerset to sign up to a Payroll Giving scheme, offering employees another way to support St. Margaret's Hospice, completely at their employee’s discretion.

For Employers:

Setting up a Payroll Giving scheme for your employees is simple and can have many rewards for your business:

  • Boosts staff morale and motivation
  • Attractive when recruiting new members of staff
  • Can add to your own charitable giving with little extra effort

For Employees:

  • It’s easy and convenient and comes straight from regular pay packets (ie monthly, weekly etc)
  • It’s tax efficient as it’s taken before PAYE tax is deducted
  • No limit on the size of the gift
  • Donations can be changed or stopped at any time

If you feel this is something you would like to offer your employees, or you would like your employer to offer this, then please see below a list of agencies who facilitate the scheme.
