QR codes – La Salette Parish Offertory Giving. Due to the issues arising with respect to banking cash and the continued desire by many people to make donations in a cashless way, the diocese has created contactless giving using QR codes. See the posters displayed. All donations will be credited directly to the parish bank account. This is a quick and efficient way of supporting your parish and thank you for your continued financial support in any way you do. Please note there are QR Codes with Gift Aid and QR Codes without Gift Aid.
