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.
Many thanks to all the parishioners who supported our Christmas Craft Fair. We are very grateful for the beautifully crafted donations that we received, and the home baking. In total we raised to date, including the crib raffle and Anne’s raffle, £786. We also received a very generous anonymous donation from a parishioner. With the £325 raised last week for us at St. Margaret’s Carol Service, our funds have received a much-needed boost. Your generosity is astounding.
