We give regular support to four charities throughout the year.
Toilet Twinning. 2.4 billion people don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. That’s more than a third of the people on the planet. By donating £60 to twin your toilet you help those in desperate poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy. Your smallest room becomes the proud owner of a certificate, complete with a colour photo of its twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin on Google Maps.
Maundy Relief, Accrington, a Christian based charity who provide an immediate response to poverty and need in the local community.
The Foxton Centre, a Christian based organisation working with the most marginalised communities in Preston to provide them with opportunities to flourish as human beings. As well as financial support we also collect clothing and toiletries for Foxton Centre appeals.
Ribble Valley Food Bank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. They provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. As well as giving financial support, we have a collection point in St Bartholomew's for the foodbank.
Other organisations supported during the year have included Sport Relief, Water Aid, Children in Need, British Legion and The Children’s Society.
