Customers are advised that cheques for the Affirmative Deposit Fund for Charities which are sent to Epworth by post are paid into the HSBC banking network. HSBC bank branches local to our office are currently closed and those further afield are subject to closure at short notice. Unfortunately, this is wholly outside of our control.
As a result of this, we strongly advise customers to send us their remittances by direct bank transfer rather than by cheque. For details of how to do this please call 020 7496 3627.
It is also possible to pay cheques into your account at other bank branches which remain open or at the Post Office. In all instances please quote your Affirmative Deposit Fund account number. Thank you.
