Banking your fundraising money

Find below an easy guide to banking your fundraising and ensuring your funds go straight to supporting your team total.

All funds raised through the Ops Fundraising challenge must be deposited into the dedicated charity partner account, managed for us by Charities Trust. All funds will be tracked carefully to ensure that deposits are recorded against your respective team total. Unique paying-in slips enable you to make a deposit at your nearest Post Office branch and will be available from your Team Lead or can be requested directly from Charities Trust. Please find below some key points of guidance:

Banking cash and cheques

1. Paying-in slips can be requested from your team lead or by contacting Chris Riley at Charities Trust via email chrisr@charitiestrust.org or by phone 0151 284 1221. Please note that you will need a specific paying-in slip to bank your cheques so please make sure you request one.
