Thanks for TAP

02 June 2010


From the Bishop of Norwich

Sir, — I was immensely pleased to learn (News, 21 May) that this year’s Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund appeal has succeeded in raising a total of £89,598 for the support of ordinands. This is a tremendous achievement.

As your readers will know, the grants made from the TAP Fund play a vital part in the funding of ordinands during their training. All the money raised — every single penny — is used to provide support direct to ordinands, to meet essential maintenance costs and to provide emergency help in the event of unforeseen financial difficulties during training.

I would like once more to express my heartfelt thanks to your readers for their most generous support of this important fund.
