Charity of the Month

The Children’s Society

Every year, we support the Children’s Society both through a collection at our Christingle service and as one of the Charities of the Month.  The Children’s Society was founded by the Church of England and is one of the leading charities working with children in need at home and abroad.

Its values chime well with ours.  They are: 

Brave:  We are brave, fighting injustice at every level, fearless in our determination to be listened to.  We expose and directly address ‘hard truths’ and are determined to turn words swiftly into actions.

Ambitious:  We are ambitious for the lives of the children we work with.  The pioneering work we do helps them and children across the country aspire to better lives.

Supportive:  We support children in their personal development and to build positive relationships. Together we enable children to reach their full potential and realise their ambitions.

Trusted:  We have been trusted for over a century to deliver care where it is most needed. We maintain that trust by being dependable and consistent in our approach and by fighting for change based on hard evidence.
