GIVING: information below about three Christian based charities:

‘Poole Food Bank is a local independent Christian charity, passionate about helping people not only get out of crisis or isolation, but “journeying” with them until they thrive. We love to find practical solutions around Food, Finance, Home or People. And we work with lots of partners – Councils, other charities, and especially local churches. We want people to be able to stand up and say “I can do this now!”’ Donations of non-perishable food can be left in the box at the back of church. The greatest needs at the moment are: Tinned fish & meat, cereals and tea. Tin openers (simple butterfly ones) are also needed.

‘Acts 435 is a revolutionary website that allows people to give money directly to others. 100% of what is donated via Acts 435 goes directly to those in need. If you Gift Aid your donation, it helps towards the running costs of the charity’. Visit the website acts435.org.uk/give and see what is
needed in our area. Janet Green is the ACTS 435 advocate for St Paul’s Church.

Christian Aid ‘Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive. But together we have the power to transform lives. For over 70 years, we’ve been standing with the poorest of our neighbours. We work in 37 countries, with people of all faiths and none, to stand up for dignity, equality and justice. Together we can create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. Our voices and actions are stronger together. And with your help, we can make an even bigger difference ‘ To find out more visit christianaid.org.uk
