Charity of the Month

On the first and second Sundays of the month we have a voluntary collection.  These alternate each month between overseas and home charities.  In the last year this has raised approximately £2000.  Charities have included The Samaritans, Water Aid, Rug Aid, Darlington's Women Refuge, World Vision and Emmaus.  We have recently supported Playgrounds for Palestine - a charity which raises money to provide much needed play areas in Palestine. 

The charities for the next few months are -
