Donate to the Tidesmen and our charities

Members of the Tidesmen.

We all know that these are difficult times - difficult no doubt for many of you personally,   Times are also very difficult for many charities, which now often face a double burden of reduced income and additional demands for their services.  It is also difficult for the Tidesmen, as not only can we not gather together and sing, but we also cannot raise revenue as we traditionally do, through our outside performances.

Your executive is now appealing to all those among you who are able to help to donate to the Tidesmen, either once or on a monthly basis.

The preferred way for you to do this is by Interac directly from your bank to the Tidesmen.  This ensures your entire donation comes to us.  For those of you who use Interac - or are prepared to learn how - just use your bank's Interac features to send a donation to 
 If you haven’t used this feature before, check to see that the service is free for you.  Please indicate in the transfer text the fund(s) to which you would like to contribute (General, CDC, or Education).  If your bank supports auto-deposit, and most major ones do, that’s all you have to do.  Otherwise, please contact our Treasurer, Dallen, by phone at 250-739-9579 or by separate email to, and let him know the secret phrase you’ve used to send the donation.

If you prefer not to use Interac, please use the Donate button below, which lets you transfer funds using PayPal directly, or by using your own credit card.   Remember to indicate to which fund(s) you wish to donate.”

We will use these funds to support our charities, especially the Child Development Centre, and also to help our own members when appropriate if we can.

So please, if you are able to so do, donate now to the Tidesmen and our charities.

You will of course receive an acknowledgement and our heartfelt thanks.
