Charity could lose vital funds after online account blocked
THE Guernsey Cheshire Home is at risk of losing vital funds after having its online payments account blocked by PayPal.
The home offers a Dream Holiday Draw every month, and people who donate a minimum of £10 a month to the charity are entered into the draw, which takes place on the last Friday of every month – £10 buys one ticket in the draw.
Since it was launched, more than 100 people have set up recurring payments using PayPal to send money directly into the charity's account every month.
In December last year PayPal placed a block on the charity taking funds out the account while it was 'under review', but earlier this week it received an email from PayPal informing it that its account had been rejected and the account was blocked from receiving any more money.
- PayPal have since restored the account, but have not given a reason why it was suspended
