Sponsor a child

Wendy Shephard Education Fund

Many children drop out of primary school as families are unable to afford the school fees, books, lunches and uniform. We were initially given money by a Supporter to set up The Wendy Shephard Education Fund in memory of her mother and  in this first year we are sponsoring ten children.

We are now looking for new Sponsors to enable more children to benefit. The cost is £100 a year to sponsor a child. If you would like us to claim Gift Aid on your donation, you only need to send £80.

Please print out this page, fill in your details (which will be kept confidential) and post the form with your cheque – made out for £100 to ‘The Guildford Mukono Link’ – to:

The Treasurer,
The Guildford Mukono Link,
21 Rosetrees,

I/We would like to sponsor a child’s schooling in Mukono, Uganda. I enclose a cheque for £100 (or £80 if you circle ‘YES’ on the Gift Aid declaration below) made out to the ‘The Guildford Mukono Link’.

Please send me a reminder each year so that I/we can send an annual cheque.

Gift Aid:  If you pay tax in the UK, we can reclaim the basic rate tax (25%) on your gift. So, a donation of £80 is worth £100 to the child you sponsor.

“I confirm that I am a UK Income or Capital Gains taxpayer. I have read this statement and want The Guildford Mukono Link to reclaim tax on the donation detailed below, given on the date shown. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax / or Capital Gains tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.”

GIFT AID: Please circle YES or NO if you would like us to claim government Gift Aid on your donation.
