The GETA Book Sale on 17th July raised £275.50. A big thank you to everyone who contributed to this very successful event.
The total is made up of £67 from sales, £168 from donations and £40.50 from Gift Aid on eligible donations. This last amount highlights the benefit of gift aiding with donors not having to pay any more - the extra comes at the rate of 25% from HMRC and is very much appreciated.
The target of £250 to fund the hire, maintenance and running costs of a minibus for at least a year was exceeded. The minibus is used for visits, to collect children from home and to drop them home again (these children would otherwise have to walk several miles to school and several miles home again after a long day at school).
