S*T*A*R*S has a problem! After 20 years of free banking from Yorkshire Bank, they were taken over by Virgin Money who now require me to pay 80p for EVERY transaction. The fund has been so successful by allowing members to make small monthly donations which soon accumulate allowing us to give our riders, young and not so young, over £70,000 to date. The mantra has always been 'every penny goes to the riders'.
Virgin would now require me to give THEM up to 16% of your donations.
I have tried all the major banks, building societies and even the post office but cannot find any organization prepared to give us free banking without us becomming a registered charity. From initial investigations that would incur equally expensive costs.
The fund currently stands at £1213.69. I cannot accept small monthly payments any longer except by cash to me,(or possibly the Speedway Office) but if anyone can give me an annual donation, cash or cheque, that would be ideal and allow us to continue helping our team, especially the younger members.
Please bear with me while I endeavor to Register S*T*A*R*S. Watch this space for developments. If you have any suggestions please contact me at; firstname.lastname@example.org
