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:-
THE MISSION TO SEAFARERS This international charity provides help and support to the 1.5 million men and women who face danger every day to keep our global economy afloat. They work in over 200 ports in 50 countries caring for seafarers of all ranks, nationalities and beliefs. Through their global network of chaplains, staff and volunteers they offer practical, emotional and spiritual support to seafarers through ship visits, drop-in seafarers’ centres and a range of welfare and emergency support services.
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.
