Logging on to pay subscription on line
It is good to see so many members make use of the facility to renew on line. However several members have experienced difficulty logging on and I should just like to remind you of several things when logging on to the portal as all 5 items need to be correct (yes, I know, it is quirky!):
Firstly, you need your membership number to hand.
Make sure CAPS LOCK is switched off, ie key in your names with initial capitals
If you are known by a preferred name, not your long name, then the latter is what you have to key in, eg Patricia not Pat.
If renewing for more than one member, enter the details for the lower membership number first.
Remember to put a space between the two parts of the postcode.
Below is a screenshot to show you an example:

Your gift aid contribution can make a major difference to our funds, enabling us to provide further support for our groups and individual members. Also, hopefully it will bolster our aim to decrease our subscription charges from 2021 onwards, thus reducing the cost to you as a member.
Please note that Gift Aid can only be reclaimed on donations made by individuals who pay UK income or capital gains tax at a rate at least equal to the amount reclaimed on their donations in the current tax year. The SLU3A as a charity can claim back 25% of your annual membership subscription. It does not cost you any money nor does it affect your tax coding.
Please download the Gift Aid form below. Then complete your name and sign and date the form and either hand or forward the form to the Membership Secretary. It is not necessary to include your Membership Number. The only requirement is that you must inform us if you are no longer a UK Taxpayer.
Membership Form This membership form is only for new applicants applying to become members for the first time. You do not need it to renew an existing membership.
Gift Aid form This form is for existing members who wish us to be able to claim tax back for membership payments.
