Ever since HUGS started in 1995 we have banked with Barclays. It was convenient. They have branches in Uganda and we did not really give much thought to other banks. They were all much the same.
But recent events must have really angered so many of our supporters and that goes for our Trustees too.
Unlike personal banking it is a bit more complicated for HUGS because we have up to 150 people paying in every month and we will be asking you all to transfer your payment to Cooperative Bank instead of Barclays
Don't do anything at present. We will contact you all in the near future and for a period we will run both accounts alongside each other.
