Thank you to all of our donors who support the Clergy Orphan Corporation Fund. Your regular donations have meant we’ve been able to support clergy children in times of great need.

Regretfully, we were recently informed by the Clergy Orphan Corporation Fund’s bank, NatWest, that it had closed the Fund’s bank account and therefore donations now need to be made to a replacement bank account.

We remain extremely grateful for all donations to the Fund, and ask those who donate in this way if they would consider altering their standing order or direct debit to the new bank account.­­­­­

Please complete and return the form below. Alternatively, let your bank or building society know to amend your Standing Order to be in line with the bank account details in the form.

The impact of your support

Donations to the Clergy Orphan Corporation Fund recently provided the majority of funding for Family Max – a day camp for clergy children in Bath and Wells diocese.

A further camp for older children, Life to the Max, also majority funded by the Clergy Orphan Corporation Fund is planned for later in the year.

The Revd Dan Crouch, who attended with his wife and daughters, said:

"The opportunity to spend time together as a family, having fun away from the demands of ministry, was so valuable. The children loved it, and want to go again next weekend!"

On behalf of the children supported by the Fund, thank you and our apologies for any inconvenience caused. If you would like to keep informed of our work, sign up for our quarterly news email.
