Gift Aid It!

All members who pay United Kingdom Income Tax or Corporation Tax are asked to complete a Gift Aid Certificate. This enables the Society, as a registered charity, to recover the tax paid on the amount of subscription. This is a very valuable aid to the Society, helping it significantly to continue its ongoing publications.

HMRC ask for a physical signature to authorise the Gift Aid refund so if you have used the on-line application form, please select and print out the "Gift Aid form" from the box below.


Thank you in anticipation of your assistance.
