Standing Orders

Why not set up a Standing Order so that your membership payments are made automatically without you having to remember? With a Standing Order, you keep control of payment information through the instructions you give to your bank or building society. You can amend these instructions at any time by getting in touch with your bank or building society. Regular payments also help us as a small charity to reduce our administrative costs.
