Charitable Appeals / Donations
Joan and Tony Phelan are our Parish contacts with the diocesan J&P Refugee Project which is currently giving £30 supermarket vouchers, via mobile phone, to people who desperately need their help. Donations would be gratefully received.
Cheques made out to D.H&N Destitute Asylum fund, can be sent by post to:
Adrain Tuckwell, St Anne's, Half Fields Road, Winlaton, NE21 5RW.
The J&P contact number is 07407 091 184 for information about giving electronically.
Please click here for more information about the project.
As you are aware the "Red Boxes" are not being emptied for the moment but the work of Missio goes on. Some church communities in different parts of the world are struggling to cope with those who have been stricken with the virus and where health care provision is all but non-existent.
Please click here to visit the Missio website.
I have also been contacted by CAFOD with similar concerns. We are all aware of the dire situation many charities face when their main funding streams are closed down. If you do regularly give to particular charities but are not able to in the customary manner please check their websites for details about how to give online.
St Mary's of the Rosary & St Aidan's
Our two parishes have money in the bank and some on deposit with the Diocese. We are by no means in dire straits, however, although
the lockdown means that some bills are much reduced, others are ongoing. People who contribute monthly by Standing Order are the
only ones from whom regular income is being received by the parishes. One or two people have asked for details about how to make contributions in this way. If you want to do this please get in touch and I will send you details.
Many thanks, stay safe, and God Bless!
