Just received an email from local charity shop saying:

"I am pleased to tell you that proceeds from selling your goods have raised £43.88 (net of commission and VAT). To donate this sum to our charity you need do nothing further. This will allow us to reclaim an additional £10.97 in Gift Aid in the tax year to 05 Apr 2020."

Is this information which has to be declared in some way on my next tax return or is this just to inform me that they will be claiming Gift Aid on this amount. Surely I don't get tax relief on this amount?
