THE TAP total is creeping up, thanks to our readers’ generous donations. In the middle of the week it stood at £57,112, including Gift Aid. There is just one week more before we tally up this year’s total.
So we ask one more time: will you help to Train A Priest? Every pound that you give helps the next generation of priests to cope financially. Many ordinands have no safety net to fall back on. If any of them encounters an unexpected expense, he or she can apply to the TAP Special Hardship Fund — but only if there are the resources available in the fund to help.
How to give
We still take cheques, postal orders, cash, and charity cheques. But giving online is easiest for many donors, and for us. Simply visit www.hymnsam.co.uk/train-a-priest.aspx. This is a secure page with clear instructions.
Please send other donations to: TAP Fund, Church Times, 13a Hellesdon Park Road, Norwich NR6 5DR. If you would like an acknowledgement, please enclose a SAE. To earmark all or part of a donation for the Special Hardship Fund, please use a covering note.
UK taxpayers can boost their gift by making a Gift Aid declaration. Please do this on our online donations page, or by enclosing the form from earlier issues.
