Fundraising

It has become a tradition to give for a chosen cause each Christmas instead of giving cards to each other

Our appeal  Christmas 2017 went to  Framework - supporting homeless people in the area. We raised £555.13 over 2 days of 'carolbusking'. Our total including the carol service, Christmas Day and other gifts is  £1080. Thanks to all who have contributed.

Fundraising at our 2017  Christmas Fair came to £1777 which is enough to by a defibrillator for the building

Over the past few years we have raised over £4,000 for various charities in the UK and abroad. In 2013  we  raised £1,100 for the motor neurone disease association. In 2014 we supported the helipad appeal launched by Nottingham Hospitals charity. A cheque for £802.29 was handed over outside the Trauma unit at QMC. In 2015 we  sent donations to Action For Children. Maggie's was the chosen charity for 2016.

We have various causes that we support on a regular basis and also give to disaster and emergencies as and when they occur through MRDF Methodist Relief and Development Fund.  

Operation Christmas Child is a cause we have supported for a number of years. It is part of Samaritans Purse. At Christmas shoe boxes full of gifts are sent to children caught up in desperate situations.

The Leprosy Mission is another cause many of our church members are invovled in.   For more details click here.

As members of CTB (Churches Together in Bingham) we are  involved in Christian Aid week and also find projects of a more individual nature to support in the third world.

We also have a box where people can donate food which is then taken to a food bank in Nottingham

Also as part of CTB we choose a project to support. Details of the latest project can be found on our CTB page
