 Terms and Conditions for Ramblers' Donate A Gate Scheme

  1. My donation does not bestow upon me any rights to the ownership of the gates/structure.
  2. Maintenance of the gate is the responsibility of the landowner.
  3. As the gate Donor I am responsible for the maintenance of the plaque. (The Ramblers will replace plaques if required, the cost of replacement being borne by the Donor).
  4. The location of the gate will be determined by current landowner and ROW requirements. Specific locations cannot be guaranteed, however we will endeavour to find a location in the Donor's preferred area on the Island.
  5. Gate installation will be completed asap as part of the ROW programme as determined by the nature, quantity and location of all work to be carried out. Hence a time limit cannot be imposed on installation.
  6.  Initially the Ramblers' Donate A Gate Organiser will contact the Donor to agree the plaque artwork and to confirm the location of the gate. Finally when installation has been completed the Donor will be informed.
  7. The Ramblers will be the sole arbitrator if an inscription is considered unsuitable by the scheme organiser.
  8. By agreeing to gift aid your £460 gate donation, the IOW Ramblers will reclaim £115 of tax from HMRC for use on our charitable activities. To qualify for gift aid you must be paying income tax and/or capital gains tax for the current year (06 April one year to 05 April the next) that is at least equal to this amount.
