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 for April 2024: This month we are collecting for LUPUS UK: Lupus is an incurable immune system illness which is probably genetic in origin and mainly affects women.  Lupus UK is a national Charity supporting people with Lupus.  The Charity arranges medical talks, publishes local newsletters, and organises fund raising events, as well as supporting research.  www.lupusuk.org.uk
