St Michael's Charities Lent Appeal 2021
Why we need your help
This year's Lent Appeal at St Michael and All Angels, Bedford Park, is again in aid of our three chosen charities who need our support now more than ever. The past 12 months have presented each of them with significant challenges but all of them have adapted and continue to work alongside some of the most vulnerable in society. As a church community, we are committed to do all we can to sustain their vital work.
The Upper Room is a front-line charity working with socially and economically disadvantaged people in West London. They work with people who are experiencing homelessness – including those at risk of homelessness. Providing 26,000 meals a year, as well as clothing and toiletries, the Upper Room offers a safe and warm environment in the short-term, while providing support to help people rebuild their lives in the long-term.
WaterHarvest is a small UK-registered charity working in the remote and arid villages of rural India, where communities are still struggling to survive without running water. Our project is to install ‘taankas’ to harvest the monsoon rains and thus provide a sustainable year-round supply of safe water for the poorest of the poor.
West London Welcome is a free drop-in centre for refugees, asylum seekers, and migrants who have settled in West London and the wider London area, providing them with the access to the services and support they need to lead full lives within their local community. Above all it is a place of welcome and acceptance for famiies and individuals.
This is just one part of the overall fundraising at St Michael’s this year. All donations and Gift Aid received as part of this campaign, whether online or directly at St Michael's, are divided equally between the three charities. Thank you for your support.
