Donate now: help us fight the proposed overdevelopment of Capel
Donations and Gift Aid
All donations are made to Capel Greenbelt Protection Society (CGPS) who manage the funds on our behalf and can be made by banking app or debit/credit card.
If you are an individual taxpayer you can add gift aid on both payment methods which adds 25% to our funds. This applies when all donations are received (not pledges). In addition, you can also claim tax relief on the sum donated. For example, if you are a higher rate taxpayer the net cost to you for a £1,000 donation is £750 and Save Capel gets £1,250. If you have any questions please contact your financial advisor or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SAVE CAPEL WOULD NOT BE AS STRONG AS IT IS TODAY WITHOUT ITS AMAZING SUPPORTERS. THANK YOU!
But there are still major stages of the plan process to come.
The Local Plan has now been submitted for Inspection and we need to engage specialist planning barristers and consultants to assist our further representations to the Inspector, and to represent us at the public examination. To be able to challenge the well-funded and resourced proponents of the Plan on anything close to an even playing field is going to come with significant cost. Whilst we have significant funds available, we estimate needing at least another £25,000 for this examination stage.
And so we are asking our wonderful supporters for donations to help fund this vital work.
Please help us continue to fight the threat of disproportionate development on our Greenbelt Parish. Save Capel would like you to donate directly to CGPS to conserve, protect and improve the Green Belt in Capel. The Save Capel Executive will work with the Trustees of CGPS to ensure all funds raised by Save Capel are spent by the campaign solely for the purpose of preventing the development of the Tudeley and East Capel sites in the Tunbridge Wells Local Plan. Once Save Capel ceases to exist any remaining funds will be spent in accordance with the charitable purposes of CGPS.
