Start time: Please arrive at the centre by 5 pm on the 26th of August, supper will be at 6 pm.

About the Retreat

This is a chance for your family to spend precious time together while exploring ideas to develop positive thoughts and attitudes both within your family dynamic and beyond.

Activities include:

  • Exploring and discovering our spacious and beautiful surroundings on nature walks.
  • Arts and Crafts activities such as making your own prayer flags to help you consider positive qualities such as kindness and compassion.
  • Lots of time to relax and enjoy some fun and games.
  • Adult only time to reflect on family life.
  • Age appropriate meditations

About the Leaders

The weekend will be led by a small team of individuals who are very familiar with the concepts being explored as well as being comfortable with and used to interacting with children.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Boost your donations by 25% at no cost to you! A Gift Aid declaration allows us to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I confirm I 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 I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Land of Joy will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When we receive a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
