Gift aid :

I want the British Trust for Ornithology to reclaim Gift Aid on this and all eligible payments I make, or have made within the last four years.

I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
