Charities Committee

CHARITIES COMMITTEE

The Charities Committee is a committee of the Parochial Church Council (PCC) to which it is accountable.

The Charities Committee organises activities throughout the year in order to raise funds for good causes. These events are currently Coffee mornings, Harvest lunch, Christmas Fair and Summer event. Each year we decide which charities will be supported that year and the monies raised during the year are divided equally between those charities. We have, over the years supported a wide variety of local and national Charities working in this country and overseas and take care to make sure that these monies go to those who need them.

This year we are supporting Beacon Counselling, the Stockport Women's Centre and Greater Manchester's The Mustard Tree, which supports people in poverty and facing homelessness. 

In 2018 our chosen charities were Coffee4Craig, Water Aid UK  and the National Autistic Society, Manchester Branch. Through our events we raised £2350, which was split between these good causes.

In addition, All Saints support the following Charities by other events namely:

  • Christian Aid
  • Samaritan’s purse (Shoebox appeal)
  • Children’s Society (Christingle)
  • Chelford Food Bank (weekly donations of food etc.)
  • Other Charities by sponsoring church members.

In order to continue raising money the Charities Committee needs the help not only of its members but of others who are able to offer help in any of the following ways:

  • Publicity
  • Helping set up events
  • Lifting and carrying.
  • Donations of items to sell e.g. toiletries, cakes, good quality bric a brac and books.
