What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

The basics

Meeting point
To join the trail, please speak to a team member along Bell Gate Drive at Stowe Gardens.
What to bring and wear

Accessibility
The gardens are partly accessible: they include uneven and hard gravel paths, steep slopes, and are slightly hilly Please be aware there is an approx. 800m walk from the car park to the garden. No buggies available. Plenty of accessible car parking.
Other
The trail story is focussed on families becoming Percy’s helper for the day helped by his animal friends, stepping into his ‘wellies’ while he is busy on site. There will be winter tasks, activities, games, clues and a note from Percy to help them along the way.
