It’s now even easier to renew…


Renew online

Click on the one of the links above to renew your membership securely now. We’ll welcome your membership renewal by whichever means you choose to pay, however as a small charity, it would greatly assist us if you could pay your membership by Direct Debit. This means less paperwork for you and reduces staff time and resources spent on administration. So if you normally pay by cash, cheque or card but would like to set up a Direct Debit to the Club, click here or on the ‘Switch to paying by Direct Debit’ link above to get started.

If you would prefer to pay your subscription this year by credit or debit card, then click here or on the ‘Renew online by Credit / Debit card’ link above to pay now.

Renew over the phone

Contact Waterston House on 01875 871 330 and we can take a card payment over the phone.

Renew by post

If you prefer not to set up a Direct Debit online, you can download a mandate here and post it to us at Waterston House, or send in a cheque made payable to ‘SOC’. Please remember to write your membership number on the back of the cheque (just call us if you need a reminder of this).

Our Freepost address is FREEPOST RTKC-TGJU-KZLB, SOC, Waterston House, Longniddry, EH32 0PY, however using a stamp will save us costs.

Renew in person

Pop in to see us at HQ to either set up a Direct Debit or renew by cash, cheque or card.

If you have any queries about renewing, your bank details have changed recently, or you’re not sure when your membership is due for renewal, then please contact the office on 01875 871 330 before renewing online.

Want to add somebody else to your membership?

You can do this online by selecting the appropriate membership category.

Gift Aid your membership renewal

The tax we can claim on Gift Aid is an invaluable source of additional income for the Club. If you’re in any doubt whether your Gift Aid declaration is up-to-date, or you’re not sure whether you have previously signed a statement, then please contact the office and we’ll happily check our records. If you are renewing your membership online, then you will be presented with the option to gift aid it.
