Scholarship Fund has new bank account

The Scholarship Fund has a new account as of this week – just in time before the Co-Operative Bank closed down our account.
We have opened an account with Yorkshire Building Society, They have a special ‘registered charities account’ which pays a small amount of interest. So that will only add to the amazing contributions you send to us.
These are the details of our new account:
Name: Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund
Bank: Yorkshire Building Society, Yorkshire House, Leopold Street, Sheffield S1 1RQ
Sort Code: 60 92 04
Account number: 98676538
Reference: 07

Protest against co-op closure of the Palestine solidarity accounts

As many as thirty protesters gathered outside the Co-Operative Bank on Pinstone Street in Sheffield today to protest against their politically inspired action to close solidarity accounts.

Ranging from campaigning account of the Sheffield PSC to  donation funds such as the Sheffield Palestine Women’s Scholarship Fund, the claim has been that funds will go to ‘terrorist organisations’ as this is a conflict zone. No mention made of funds going to Israel which is also in the conflict zone.

 

Close accounts at the Co-op

In protest against the co-operative bank’s prejudicial decision to close accounts associated with Palestine Solidarity, we will be assembling outside their branch in Pinstone Street Sheffield, Thursday December 3rd,  to close out accounts.

This is a public invitation to join us
