Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able ro help you with your question.
The UK has no gifts tax regime so these moneys will come to you tax free. Thank your lucky sr=tars that you don't live in France where gifts tax kicks in at 5K Euros! Just warn the bank of incoming funds and their source to preclude any money laundering inquiry a large transfer might otherwise attract.
As you are on benefits it might be adviseable for your father to receive this gift direct.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
Delighted to have been of assistance.
