Helpful Hints for Gift Aid Recording and Counting:
check that all the envelopes are for Downham Parish. If any are for other Parishes, the money inside should be included in our collection, but not recorded on our Gift Aid Schedules. The amount enclosed should be noted on the outside of the envelope
and the envelope given to Mary Whinder who will return it to the originating Parish for their records.
Money is always recorded for the week it is receivedeven if some of the envelopes are for different dates.
cheques to be included for Gift Aid must be made payable to “Good Shepherd Church”. Cheques made out to the Parish Priest personally cannot be included and should not be recorded on our schedules.
If there is a second collection,
please note what it is for on the white summary sheet.
