INTERNATIONAL HUMANITARIAN SUPPORT

We have been supporting international activities since 1953 and our programme has continued despite the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.  Our long-term support of humanitarian aid including:

  • WaterAid to get safe water, sanitation and hygiene to everybody everywhere.
  • Mercy Ships to bring a state-of-the-art hospital to regions where medical facilities are limited or non-existent.
  • Financing over 40 ShelterBoxes giving emergency shelter to families suffering after natural disasters or conflict.
  • Providing funds to help to support Australian volunteer Rural Fire Service after devastating bushfires.
  • Two projects in Uganda - refurbishment and extension of a Primary School and ongoing improvements to a Health Clinic.
  • End Polio Now campaign.   In the 35 years since the programme began, we have donated around £40,000.
