HNHS and Herts Bird Club members who pay their subscriptions online via Virgin Money Giving will share our disappointment that the charity fundraising site is being closed down this autumn by parent company, Virgin Money. We have been informed that it will cease operating at the end of November.

The HNHS management committee is considering ways of introducing online applications, including the possibility of an online facility for paying subscriptions, and will report to members as soon as the available options have been fully explored.

Members who currently pay via Virgin Money Giving may, meanwhile, wish to to consider using either a direct bank transfer for their 2022 subscriptions (due in January) or – better still – setting up an annual standing order. The HNHS bank account number is 02994402 and the sort code 30-94-08 (Lloyds Bank).
