St Peter's Flood Fund

This is the River Don, coming over the wall at Willow Bridge Caravan Site at 7.26am on Friday the 9th November. Within hours of this photo being taken many houses in the Town End of Bentley were under knee deep water, and the contents of the caravans on this site were completely destroyed.

On Friday, the emergency services did their bit to help people, rescue those who were stranded and make the area safe. By 9am on Saturday morning, most of the water was gone leaving a trail of devastation behind it. St Peter’s Church was one of the first external groups on the scene and, motivated by our Christian faith, we’ve been there ever since, standing with our community.

Since then people have been asking us to collect donations that will be used to support our community in Bentley. So we have opened the St Peter’s Flood Fund to help those affected get back on their feet. We are working to help people dry their houses, but the Flood Fund is to help people with the costs of getting their lives back on track.


We will help people buy flooring and essential furniture and white goods, prioritising those who are uninsured. Since the 2007 Bentley floods, many people find the cost of insurance out of their price range, so this is even harder for them.

You can make a real difference to some of the poorest people affected by these floods by making a donation now. The only deduction from your donation will be the fees charged by our card processor which are 34p of a £10 donation or £1.60 from a £100 donation.

Please give generously using the form below.

We are committed to being as transparent as possible about where our money has come from and where it is going.  You can read more about it on our transparency page.


If you would like to give by another method, please call the church on 01302 876272 or 07490 582750 and we’ll give you the advice you need.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows St Peter's Bentley to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to St Peter's Bentley we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like St Peter's Bentley to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. 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 St Peter's Bentley 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 St Peter's Bentley receives 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.
