We have now agreed our Missions for 2014. These are the three charities that we will be supporting with our fundraising events throughout the year, including Table Top Sales and our Summer and Christmas Fayres.
We have a target to raise £2000 this year to share between these Missions. Our first fundraising event is our Table Top Sale this Saturday (22nd February 10:30am-12:30pm).
Our Missions for 2014 are:
International Mission: Ethiopiaid
Ethiopiaid → has been changing lives in Ethiopia since 1989. It is a small but effective charity raising funds for trusted community partners in the capital of Ethiopia, Addis Ababa. They work with the best local charities, valued for their expertise, skill and ambition tackling poverty alleviation, healthcare and education. By targeting these areas they help the poorest to find their way out of unnecessary suffering.
National Mission: National Association for Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s and Colitis UK → is the working name for the National Association for Colitis and Crohn’s Disease (NACC). The NACC was first established in 1979 as a patients’ association and aims to improve life for everyone affected by Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) – the main forms being Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. The charity has been providing information and support, funding research and fighting for change by bringing together people of all ages who have been diagnosed with IBD, their families and friends, and the professionals involved in their care.
Local Mission: ASCEND
ASCEND is our very own Mission working right in the heart of our community. They’re all about moving people forward, challenging their perceived barriers to education and training; providing people with more choice and control over their lives.
