Gift Aid On Behalf Of The National Forest Company

Gift Aid

If you are a UK tax payer, you can help to support the charitable work of the National Forest Company (the owners of CONKERS) by choosing to Gift Aid your admission.

Our daily admission ticket or annual membership contains a small, suggested donation to the charity to enhance CONKERS and the wider National Forest. You can choose not to pay this small donation if you wish, but without it we cannot claim Gift Aid. With it, we can claim back the tax on the whole amount of your admission from Government, which works out at an extra 25p for every £1 you spend.

There’s no need to complete any forms, we’ll just ask for a few details when you pay. If you are purchasing tickets online, you can simply click the ‘Buy Gift Aid Tickets’ button. 

By choosing to Gift Aid you are not only helping CONKERS but supporting the National Forest to plant more trees for people, wildlife and a greener future – thank you.

Please note that in choosing a Gift Aid payment you acknowledge that you pay sufficient income or capital gains tax over the year to cover the donation you have made today.

Thank you
