    I'm analyzing the 221 congregations in the UK that had additional account info.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but was it 2015 when the letter was read out instructing congregations to donate excess funds to the World Wide Work?

    The amounts donated to the World Wide Work are significant. I still have much work to do.

    Aberdare Congregation Of Jehovahs Witnesses sold their hall in 2016 for £70,000 and donated this and an additional £10,000 for a total of 80,000 to the World Wide Work.

    Bexhill On Sea Pebsham Congregation Of Jehovahs Witnesses received a legacy of £25,320 for 2016 and donated £20,000 to the World Wide Work. Interestingly, the accounts statement records a negative line item of £1 as this was reported to be a fake pound coin!

    Biggleswade Congregation Of Jehovahs Witnesses donated £87,000 to the World Wide Work in 2015.

    In 2016 Blackburn Roe Lee Congregation Of Jehovahs Witnesses received a legacy of a whopping £361,471 and donated £360,180 to the World Wide Work.

    Significant sums of money donated. It seems congregations have been "robbed" by donating a ton of money to Brooklyn/IBSA since that letter was read, no doubt to pay for more lawsuits.

    Good stuff truthseeker. Goes to show the disgraceful money-sucking being grabbed by HQ. All handed over by elders who don't think beyond marching to the GB tune.

    I’ve been watching UK JW accounts for years, this isn’t new.

    The yearly bethel finances are worse, all that money from all over the UK that is left over costs, gets donated to an American charity.... a ‘mother’ charity.

    This of course being the WT Soc.
