Thank you so much for taking the time to raise money for The Royal Parks. We really appreciate your support. The 77 million visitors who use the parks every year, the wildlife which call them home and visitors to The LookOut, Hyde Park do as well!
When to pay
Please send us all sponsorship monies within 30 days of receiving the money. We encourage you to set up an online fundraising page to collect sponsorship but ask that you send any donations you may have received directly, or from fundraising events you may run, to us along with completed sponsorship forms where appropriate to enable us to reclaim the Gift Aid.

To make the most of your sponsorship, if your donors are UK tax payers, we need their full name, full address and confirmation that they’re eligible for us to claim Gift Aid*. Please only use The Royal Parks sponsorship form to collect this information then return it by post.
* To qualify for Gift Aid, what your supporter pays in income or capital gains tax must at least equal the amount claimed by all charities and community amateur sports clubs (CASCs) in the tax year from HMRC. Council tax and VAT do not qualify. To qualify for Gift Aid, they must include their home address on their method of payment. Please note that there are a few exceptions to this. For example, people connected to the fundraiser such as immediate family should not claim Gift Aid because donations made by ‘connected persons’ do not qualify for Gift Aid. You can see full details about Gift Aid on the HMRC website.
