Membership of the Eric Liddell Centre
The Centre is an Edinburgh local charity with a Board of Trustees elected by the members at the AGM. The membership fee is used as a donation towards our charitable work.
Who are our members?
Our members come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Most live locally, but there is no restriction on location and anyone can show their support by joining.
The minimum standard subscription from 1st April 2013 is £5 per month, per person (£60 p.a.). There is a reduced subscription of £24 per year (£2 per month) for pensioners, the unemployed and students. This can either be set up through PayPal (shown below) or Standing Order (please ask us for a Standing Order form).
