CHARITIES WE SUPPORT IN THE PARISH OF HARDINGTON VALE
The Parish supports three charities – one international, one national and one local. Here are the current charities we are supporting:-
CHRISTIAN BLIND MISSION (cbm) is an international Christian charity seeking to transform the lives of disabled people in the world’s poorest communities. They work with disabled people to break down barriers by delivering practical support, improving policy and practice and inspiring the people of the UK to support them in this work through giving and prayer.
MERCY UK this national charity provides opportunities for women to experience God’s love, forgiveness and life-transforming power in partnership with their local church. This UK charity tries to address the root causes of issues women face, rather than merely medicating the symptoms or addressing the external behaviour.
They seek to help break the cycle of destruction by helping others find freedom and restoration through a provision of services. This in turn will positively affect the generation they will parent and drastically reduce the chances of history repeating itself.
ACTIVE AND IN TOUCH based in Frome this charity supplies volunteers who visit, help and befriend people who have become isolated or out of touch with the community around them. Working in partnership with Somerset You Can Do Services they offer ongoing befriending support to anyone who feels isolated or lonely in the local area.
