Charity of the Month

Each year, the congregation at St. Andrew’s nominates charities, both local and national, who they‘d like to support over the coming twelve months, over and above their weekly giving to the Church.  The congregation then votes and the top ten charities (plus the annual Bishop of London’s Lent Appeal and CofE Schools in the Diocese) are each allocated a month and details of the charity are posted in church and donations placed in the collection box.

This month’s Charity is: St. Luke’s Hospice, located in Kenton, is the local hospice for people of Harrow and Brent.   The hospice provides patients and families with compassionate end-of-life care.  The focus is on quality of care and value of life.  In some cases care is provided in the patients own home.       www.stlukes-hospice.org
