ODA's PayPal Payment Page

Important / Pwysig


If you're a NEW MEMBER, please ensure you've completed the ODA Membership Application Form before proceeding.

If you're an EXISTING, or EXPIRED MEMBER, please ensure you've completed either the ODA Member Details Update Form HERE,  or the ODA Membership Renewal Form HERE  before completing this payment transaction, otherwise we may no know who you are...

Once you've selected your preferred membership type, add that to your 'cart' and follow the prompts to complete the transaction;  please look out for the 'Enter Description' Box in subsequent pages, this is where you should type in your Full Name.

You can pay your subscriptions by other 'traditional' methods, however PayPal offers a convenient alternative.  PayPal charges the ODA per transaction, so as a non-profit association staffed by volunteers, we respectfully request that you help us to keep our running costs down by covering those charges please; we've already added those to the pricing shown above, for your convenience.  

You can always pay your subscriptions by other, no / low cost options of your choice (see HERE).

NOTE:   As a Non-Profit organisation that depends upon volunteers to administer its functions, any surplus funds we have is routinely channelled towards Friars School related beneficiaries, be that to celebrate past achievements, or as bursaries for the current Headmaster of Ysgol Friars to award current students, as they see fit. 

Needless to say that all donations are very gratefully received and you don't have to be a member of the ODA to donate.  We never disclose details of donors, unless they've requested it, in which case we would be happy to discuss terms.
