Campaign Bank Account Is Having Teething Problems!

The Campaign recently set up a bank account as it has started to receive a few most welcome donations. If you have tried to sent a donation directly to the Campaign’s bank account you may have encountered a difficulty in getting the payment accepted.

Unfortunately our bank, Lloyds, having provided the Campaign with the account details and a cheque book then went & suspended the account with informing us. It transpires that Lloyds own internal fraud prevention measures, that have to undertaken whenever a new bank account is opened these days, weren’t properly followed! This was no fault of the Campaign’s!

We are in the process of getting the bank to sort out their outstanding checks on the signatories on the account. We are expecting the account to be fully useable in the next day or so. Apologies to anyone who tried unsuccessfully to place money straight into our account.

The Campaign must record its thanks to our local Devon County Councillor Claire Wright who has donated £250 from her DCC locality account to the Campaign in order to assist us in our activities. This donation was very much needed & was most welcome.
