Every year, GCRG Officers, Committee Members and Reps clock up huge amounts of mileage on GCRG business. Under HMRC rules, they are allowed to claim expenses on this mileage from the Group at a rate of 45p / mile. However, if they kindly choose to donate these expenses back to the Group, Gift Aid can be claimed on the donation. During the year, records are kept of all mileage driven and this is entered into the Gift Aid system by our Treasurer.

Additionally, any donations to GCRG are eligible for Gift Aid if you so choose.
