This comes up occasionally on some of the forums and mailing lists I'm on:
As far as I'm aware, all you can do with just a bank account number and sort
code is put money in, it can't be exploited in any way. Most of the
charities have been publishing bank account numbers for years, so unless
there's some new exploit I'm not aware of, I wouldn't worry about it.

If you're down in the bank again though, please ask why. :)
