Charities 2016-2017

This year (May 2016 to April 2017) we will be supporting 6 specific charities which have been nominated by members of the congregation.

Dates Charity
May – June 2016 Godmanchester Foodbank
http://godmanchester.foodbank.org.uk/
July – August 2016 Shelterbox
www.shelterbox.org
September – October 2016 Church Army
http://www.churcharmy.org.uk/
November – December 2016 Pop Offsets
http://www.popoffsets.org/
January – February 2017 The Alex Hulme Foundation
http://www.alexhulmefoundation.co.uk/
March – April 2017 Fare Share
http:// www.fareshare.org.uk/

We hope that supporting each charity for a 2-month period will allow us all to learn more about that charity and to become more involved. More information on the current charity is always available on the charities page  of this website, in the monthly newsletter and on the charities’ noticeboard in the church porch.

These are in addition to the regular charities that we support (Royal British Legion at Remembrance; Harvest Festival Charity (Wateraid in recent years); the Children’s Society at Christingle; Christian Aid Week and other charities via events organised by Buckden & District Churches Together) and to any Disasters and Emergencies Committee Special Appeals.
