Thank you to everyone who has helped and contributed to raise awareness and funds for our charities. Our recent work includes:
Lent Charity 2017 - Great Ormond Street Hospital
During Lent, we try to support a different charity each year. This year we will be raising money for GOSH - a place very dear to many of our hearts. There are collection boxes in church in which you can save your small change and which please bring back to the church on the Easter weekend. Many thanks
Informal Carol Service
We are most grateful to Stephen and Katherine Fellowes for organising our informal carol service which raised over £300 for our Christmas Charity Mesothelioma UK. With the help of their friends Doreen, Nick and Douglas we really raised the roof with our singing supported by David Bird on the organ.
Over 100 boxes were made and delivered by our church to help make Christmas for some children a little more special. Thank you for all your support each box really does make a difference.
Thank you for all the produce we have been able to give to the Waltham Abbey Food Bank. The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 food banks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK, where thirteen million people live below the poverty line. In the last year it gave 1,109,309 three day emergency food supplies to people in crisis.
The Food banks work with referral agencies to issue food vouchers to those in need of emergency food in times of crisis and provides a minimum of three days' nutritionally balanced, tinned and dried food donated by the local community. Whilst the food parcel is being prepared, the recipient is offered a warm drink and a biscuit and an informal chat to see if further support can be offered.
During Lent 2016 we raised £192.69 for Water Aid.
We raised over £480 during our Christingle Service.
We raised over £1000 in loving memory of our friend Jakki Abbott whilst Carol Singing at various venues over Christmas.
