It has been a terrible time for charities just like most other parts of the economy – income has dropped significantly but the need remains.
Several charities have made attempts to find ways of increasing their income using the pandemic itself as a starting point. Two at the moment are:
Sue Coleman of Cytun Colwyn Bay says: There is currently a way through Christian Aid to give thanks for having your Covid vaccine by giving a donation that can help protect the most vulnerable people, while the vaccine is out of reach. Each dose of the Pfizer vaccine costs around £15 and each dose of the Oxford/Zeneca vaccine costs around £3. Maybe you would like to join this initiative, perhaps as a way of giving this Lent. If so, the details can be found here.
It’s the custom , for some people, to GIVE-UP something for LENT – like chocolate or puddings! HOW ABOUT “GIVING”, instead? A “Rescue & Recovery Fund” has been created to support Bible Society’s Ministry in 88 nations, where staff are struggling to work with vulnerable communities. We know that spiritual food sustains in difficult times, with God’s Word of Hope & Comfort. THE CHALLENGE IS – HOW MANY BIBLES DO YOU HAVE? WOULD YOU, for EACH ONE, GIVE £2…..£5……. £10 to Bible Society this LENT, for the work to continue to produce Bibles for people in their mother -tongue? Cheques, made payable to Bible Society, should be sent to: Dr Margaret Macaulay, Apt 36, Cwrt Gloddaeth, Gloddaeth St. LLANDUDNO LL30 2DP or by Bank Transfer (details available from Bev). Please will you PRAY for Bible Societies at risk of closing & for the 500 projects under threat. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS AND GIFTS. D. Roberts (Chair), K. Morris (Sec) M. Macaulay (Treas.)
