Change of bank details
**IMPORTANT NOTICE - PLEASE READ IF YOU GIVE A REGULAR GIFT OR USE THE ONLINE DONATION PLATFORMS**
Dear friends and supporters,
Please note that since 17th October 2023 we have been unable to receive ANY electronic donations (this includes regular gifts by standing order/Direct Debit, donations via Facebook/PayPal Giving Fund, and donations via the CAF Donate button on our website) because our banking provider closed our bank account in error at no notice, leaving us with no banking arrangements whatsoever. This is the subject of an ongoing complaint.
We have now opened a new bank account with a different provider, so please use the following bank details for any donations you may wish to make and NOT any of the other online platforms for the time being, please:
Account name: Wakefield District Sight Aid
Account number: 74417942
Sort code: 05-02-00
Please note that we WILL be able to accept contactless card payments at our Demo Day on Monday 6th November as usual, as these will be linked to our new account. We are working hard to get the other online services linked to our new account as soon as possible - our new account only went live this afternoon. If you have recently sent a cheque for raffle tickets/donations, this is why it has not yet been cashed and we will hopefully be banking these very soon.
Thank you so much for your understanding and continued support of our work. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The team at Wakefield District Sight Aid
