THE total donated so far this year to the Church Times Train-A-Priest (TAP) Fund is just shy of £54,000. Thank you to our readers for their generosity. We would like to raise more, however; so, if you have not yet donated, please consider doing so.
The more money that we raise, the more we can do to help ordinands who face unforeseen financial difficulties. There are no administration costs: every penny helps ordinands.
How to give: giving online is the easiest means of donating to TAP, and saves us time in processing payments. Simply visit www.churchtimes.co.uk/train-a-priest-fund. The instructions there are clear, and there is a link to a secure page for donations. There is also a downloadable leaflet about TAP, to print and distribute in your church.
Otherwise, we accept cheques, postal orders, cash, and charity cheques, which should be sent to: TAP Fund, Church Times, 13a Hellesdon Park Road, Norwich NR6 5DR.
If you would like an acknowledgement, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
UK taxpayers: please boost your donation by making a Gift Aid declaration. Again, this can be done online.
