What is Operation Safeguard?

From the earliest days of the Vulcan to the Sky Trust’s work, the charity has always had two guiding principles, to honour those who served us in the past and to inspire future generations to help maintain the United Kingdom’s historic role at the forefront of innovation in aviation.

We are proud to announce a major fundraising campaign to build The Vulcan Experience, a dedicated new home at Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) that will embody those guiding principles in a unique and memorable centre.

Please note: Gift Aid cannot be applied to merchandise, but can be applied to Donations including Shares.

Gift Aid is a Government scheme that allows UK Tax payers to make an allowance against their tax payments towards charitable giving. If you pay tax on earnings or savings to the UK Government, you can award Gift Aid. It costs you nothing and we do all the paperwork.

You have only to click on the appropriate box on the drop down menu to confirm that you wish us to claim. Not only does it affect this order but can be applied to previous or future donations for the last four years – adding a massive 25% to all your donations and at no cost at all to you. So for example every £10 you give to XH558 can become £12.50.

By clicking the Yes statement you are confirming that we can claim Gift Aid on this and future gifts of money and those over the past 4 years. You are also confirming that you are a UK tax payer and the amount of your income/capital gains tax is greater than the tax the Trust will reclaim in a single tax year.

To qualify, Gift Aid on your charitable donations must never exceed the amount of tax you pay in any one financial year and for higher rate tax payers, it can actually be very tax efficient. Please consult a financial advisor if you wish to make a sizeable donation.
