Benefits

Subscriptions

Annual subscription costs

The subscription year runs with the calendar year. New members pay the full annual subscription for the year they join and receive all members' publications for that year.

The basic subscription, for a UK resident new member or a UK resident member who has not given a direct debit authority is £30. There is a £5 reduction to £25 for a member who gives a direct debit authority.

Members resident elsewhere in Europe subscribe £35 (including post and packaging).

Members resident elsewhere in the World subscribe £40 (including post and packaging).

Again, for all those resident outside the UK, there is a £5 reduction for a member with a UK bank account who gives a direct debit authority.

Members aged 25 or under at any time in the year who pay by direct debit (and give us their date of birth) subscribe £12.50 (wherever they live, though a direct debit must be to a UK bank account). We reserve the right to seek evidence of date of birth.

Regular payments

Ideally a subscription would be paid by a direct debit on a UK bank - this gives you a £5 discount. You can of course cancel your direct debit by writing to your bank at any time. Any members uncertain whether they have a direct debit can check with the Treasurer.

Data Protection Act

Membership records are held on computers in the United Kingdom and the Penguin Collectors Society is the data controller for purposes of the Data Protection Act. Membership data is held for two purposes: to facilitate our administration and to provide a service to members by providing addresses (including e-mail addresses) to fellow members, including dealers.

We will provide you with a printed copy of the full details of the information we hold about you upon written request to our Membership Secretary at 18 The Tyning, Bath BA2 6AL and will make any amendments to your membership data requested. If you do not wish your membership data to be shared with fellow members, please inform the Membership Secretary.

Gift Aid

You can boost your donation by 25p for every £1 you donate. In order to Gift Aid your donation you must tick the box below:

  • I want to Gift Aid the donation of my subscription and any donations I make in the future or have made in the past 4 years to Penguin Collectors Society. I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

Please notify Penguin Collectors Society if you want to cancel this declaration, change your name or home address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains. If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
