Bank Account Closures
On the 1st April 2014 the Trustee Board of Rape Crisis (England and Wales) – Charity Number 1119680 - approved the change of charitable status to a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) named Rape Crisis England & Wales with the Charity Number 1155140.
As a result Rape Crisis England and Wales has opened bank accounts to reflect the new Charity Status, Name and Number.
The Board of Trustees of Rape Crisis England & Wales has decreed that the Bank Accounts of the former Charity should be closed before the end of the current financial year (March 2015).
We have contacted as many of the payees (regular donors) as we have been able to find addresses for but have been unable to contact every donor.
We would like to thank you sincerely for your generous support and ask that if you are still making payments to these accounts that you arrange to have the payments stopped.
If you wish to continue your support to Rape Crisis England & Wales you are very welcome to do so - please see instructions above.
BANK ACCOUNTS DUE TO CLOSE on 31-03-2015:
HSBC Account No: 02591081
CAF Bank Ltd Account No: 00018464
