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: Prostate Cancer Charity.  The Prostate Cancer Charity was founded in 1996, the first national organisation for prostate cancer in the UK, with an aim to improve the care and welfare of those affected by prostate cancer, increase investment in research, and raise public and political awareness of a long-neglected disease.  We merged with Prostate Action in 2012 and completely rebranded to form Prostate Cancer UK. In the last 20 years, we’ve invested over £37 million into ground breaking research, and continue to provide award-winning support for men. www. prostatecanceruk.org
