St Michael's 2019 Charities
Why we need your help
St Michael and All Angels, Bedford Park, supports three chosen charities, each for a period of three years. Below are details of our 2019 charities.
We have just concluded our fundraising for 2019 and final figures will be updated shortly. Look out for our new charity for 2020.
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.
The Amber Trust supports blind and partially sighted children to develop their musical ability and discover the potential of music. Learning to play an instrument or sing can transform their lives. Music therapy can offer a lifeline, helping blind children to reach out in a dark and confusing world. Many blind children in the UK live in poorer families and particularly need help from The Amber Trust.
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 in the state of Rajasthan.
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.
