AN UPDATE ON ADVENT APPEAL
A huge thank you to everyone who supported our very successful Advent Appeal which raised a fantastic £6,742.90 with 75% going to go to our nominated charity Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness (KCAH) who received a very welcome cheque for £5,057.18.
Camilla Wheal of KCAH has said that they will use our donation to “support those clients who live in our Access project who have fought their way out of homelessness (and dealt with any underlying issues) and who are now ready to work again.”
LAUNCH OF LENT APPEAL
We will be launching our Lent Appeal on the weekend of 2/3 March and it will run until 28th April.
We are giving you the opportunity to choose the Lent Appeal charity through a voting process which will start on the weekend of 2/3 February and close on Sunday 17 February. The three charities you are selecting from are:
Help Refugees: https://helprefugees.org/
Mary’s Meals: https://www.marysmeals.org.uk/
A display board for each charity will be in the Narthex from 2/3 February so you will be able to learn more about each charity’s work. You will be able to vote for your choice by placing a sticker on the relevant display board or vote online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VF5L2VQ .
The funds raised by the Lent Appeal will be allocated 50% to the charity and 50% to the parish.
There will be lots of fun events taking place during the Lent Appeal.
