Payment for Rallies


Whilst most members pay deposits for rallies by cheque, and many pay the balance on arrival by another cheque, it is appreciated that an increasing number of members no longer have access to cheques. It is not possible, at this time, to setup a fully on-line credit/debit card payment system as the security requirements of the Data Protection Act (2018) cannot be met.

We have also been informed by the Bank that from 1st November 2021 we will be charged 40p for every cheque processed, whist this is a relatively small amount, given the number of cheques handled in a year it adds up to a significant charge.

In order to minimize these costs, and to accommodate those members who have no cheques, payments can be made by Bank Transfer.

This will allow members to pay both the deposit and the balance, or the full amount, prior to arrival on the Rally.

It is most important that both the Treasurer (to reconcile the accounts) and the Rally Officers know who, and how much, has been paid on each occasion, so the following procedure MUST be followed.

1) Make the payment to: - CAMC Wiltshire Centre
Sort Code: - 40-08-28
Account number: - 81541072
Reference: - Rally # (insert rally number from rally book)

2) Send an email to: - treasurer@wiltshirecentre.co.uk
with the following details: - "Paid by Bank Transfer" then … Your Name, amount transferred, which Rally (date, name and number), purpose (deposit/balance/full payment),

3) Contact the Rally Officer (email/phone/text) with the same information.
NOTE: If this is a deposit/booking for a rally then a Rally Booking Slip MUST be posted/emailed to the Rally Officer as well.

If unsure on how much to pay then contact the Rally Officer before commencing this procedure.

If these simple steps are not adhered to, the Treasurer and Rally Officer will not know who has paid what, or when, resulting in confusion and large amounts of work chasing down information being required. This will not be acceptable as these members are already giving up their time to enable you to rally, and the additional workload is simply unfair.

All members are encouraged to use this method of payment as it reduces costs and worload significantly.
