Payment options

Payment options

We accept payment for membership using PayPal, the safer, easier way to pay online. New members can set up payment during online registration and existing members can renew their subscription in the secure members' area.

We are a registered charity and can therefore claim Gift Aid on your membership subscription, which constitutes a donation. If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete a Gift Aid declaration if you have not done this online.

If you have any queries regarding payment, please contact the Treasurer.

We would strongly prefer you to use PayPal for subscription payments, but if that is unsuitable we do offer a range of alternative payment methods. These are described below.

Standing order

Most banks have the facility to set up a standing order online. The details are:

Sort code: 20-19-95

Payment reference: please use your unique payment reference

Please note that we are currently updating our systems to speed up the import of data from our bank statements. This means that everyone will be assigned a unique payment reference. Instructions will be provided here and in confirmation emails once this is set up. In the meantime, if you are setting up a standing order, please contact the Treasurer for guidance.

Alternatively, this can be done in writing, using your bank's form or ours (below).
