TAP Fund receives a generous gift of £10k

28 March 2013

LENT is drawing to a close, but it is not too late to give to our Lenten appeal for the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund. The appeal continues during Eastertide, and the grand total will be announced on the Friday before Whitsunday.

This week, as we went to press, we heard that a generous donation of £10,000 had been received. We know that TAP's beneficiaries - those in training for the priesthood in the Church of England - will be grateful for this help and vote of confidence. Nothing whatsoever is deducted to cover administrative costs.

Few of our readers can afford so much, we suspect; but any donations are welcomed, however small, and a special collection in church can give the Fund a real boost. Why not make a TAP "Easter offering"? Or organise a collection at the parish's annual meeting? We have made a full-colour leaflet available to download and print out at www.churchtimes.co.uk. This will do all the explaining for you, and includes a Gift Aid form. Why not put one on every chair?

HOW TO GIVE. Simply send cheques, postal orders, charity cheques, and cash to: TAP Fund, Church Times, 13a Hellesdon Park Road, Norwich NR6 5DR. For an acknowledgement, please enclose a SAE. To Gift Aid your donation, please use this form. We we will print it again next week. Or use our easy online giving page: www.hymnsam.co.uk donations/train-a-priest.

Please note that we do not use donors' details for any non-TAP purposes. Hymns A&M never sells on any details for any purposes.
