The VHC now relies entirely on donations and fund-raising.
No charge is made for
the non-driving activities which we undertake.
The founding members
of VHC initiated a
covenant scheme which
we now manage under Gift Aid. Approximately 100 local people pledge
a regular sum of money (paid via direct debit) to the Centre and
we then claim the appropriate tax rate percentage back in addition.
We raise several thousand pounds a year in this way.
We are also the recipients
of many very generous donations from both users and supporters
of the service
Vicki Doy describes
her communities as very generous and says that, on the whole,
the Centre rarely lacks funds.
