They do charge a small percentage for this service so if you can gift via direct Bank Transfer through your Internet bank account Unity Oldland will get even more.
However, this may be easier if you don't have an Internet bank account. We were told at Church Council that we are due to pay an instalment of our loan to Staple Hill £4,657 and we owe the builder £4,904, so any extra you can gift through our Gift Day would be very welcome.
If anyone would prefer to have cash collected please let Margaret S know.
