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.

Charity of the Month: OCTOBERDiabetis UK: the leading charity for people living with diabetes in the UK.  Our vision is to build a world where diabetes can do no harm.   The charity campaigns for improvements in the care and treatment of people with diabetes and dedicated to helping people manage and adjust their lifestyle to accommodate to life with diabetes.
