Gift Aid

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.

For a £30 Donation

Your chosen name will be displayed on a commemorative plaque under Vulcan XH558’s delta-wing.

For a £50 Donation

Your chosen name will be displayed on a commemorative plaque under Vulcan XH558’s delta-wing, on one of the key operational doors beneath the aircraft, such as the bomb-bay doors.

Your name will be displayed discreetly on XH558’s camouflage paintwork, so the names do not detract from the aesthetic appearance of the aircraft, and will remain in place for her lifetime, being replaced if the surfaces are painted in future.

The names under XH558’s massive delta-wing will be applied in early 2022. We will keep you up-to-date via email of the progress to install them. When the artwork is in place you will be able to see photographs online of all the names and be able to book a visit to view them.

For a £30 donation, your chosen name will also be placed in perpetuity on one of the two Vulcan wing tips that will form a new hangar Safeguard exhibit in that will be displayed next to XH558 in her new hangar home when it is built.

The two specially-mounted original Vulcan port and starboard wing tips are major items from the spares purchased from the MoD when XH558 left RAF service and are from the mid-1960s era. 

For a £50 donation, your chosen name will also be placed on the bomb-bay fuel tank that was removed from Vulcan XH558 after she flew into Bruntingthorpe Airfield on the 23 March 1993, her last flight in RAF Service.

The bomb bay fuel tank will become a new hangar Safeguard exhibit which will be permanently displayed next to Vulcan XH558 in her new hangar home when it is built.

An ideal gift, or keepsake for you to frame to show your support to Operation Safeguard.

We will send you a certificate featuring the name you have chosen to be displayed under Vulcan XH558 and on the Safeguard exhibit in XH558’s new hangar.

Operation Safeguard Rivets

Your £30 donation will also reward you with a sample set of genuine Avro/ Hawker Siddeley Aviation fasteners from the RAF stock purchased with XH558.

The rivets are made from aircraft grade aluminium.

Operation Safeguard Identification Plate

Your £50 donation will also reward you with a reproduction of Vulcan XH558’s Aircraft Identification Plate displaying the unique details of this remarkable aircraft.

The original aircraft ID plate is still fitted to XH558 today, mounted on the rear wall of the nose-wheel bay.

Along with all the above, for your donation of either £30 or £50 you will receive the reward of XH558 Guardian Membership for 12 months and your benefits will include:
