Friends of Sacred Heart welcomes you

The Friends of Sacred Heart was established in December 2005. It is part of what the parish does to engage with the wider community. On its behalf a group of parishioners meets regularly to organise fundraising and the allocation of funding to overseas projects.

Friends of Sacred Heart targets projects that are not supported by major charities. They are usually suggested by members of the parish because of a personal link, recommendation or knowledge of what they do.


Friends of Sacred Heart uses a formal application form to consider potential projects. Projects provide written reports and photos to show how the funding benefits the people receiving the service or provision. There are no administration costs: 100% of the money goes to the projects.

We are having a Christmas Craft Fair on Sunday 10 December after mass at Sacred Heart Church. The aim is to boost our funds which are fairly depleted as we have made substantial donations on your behalf this year to projects overseas. We would like to fund an electricity generator for the Bakery Project we support in India. We are seeking donations of any and all types of crafts including; knitting; Christmas-themed sewing; candles; Christmas table decorations; cards etc. We will leave a box in the Michael Room for donations. Your ongoing support is much appreciated.
