Supporting charities and churches during the outbreak

Like many businesses, charities have seen income streams reduce due to the Coronavirus restrictions: please think about how you can go on supporting them.

Churches are no different. We continue to receive Standing Order payments, but a lot of giving comes in the form of cash at services, which have been severly reduced this and last year; or through fundraising events, most of which have had to be cancelled. Even when our buildings have not been in use, there have still been costs to meet. Church treasurers will be able to advise about ways to give, or see p17 of May 2020 Outlook magazine. The following parishes have on-line giving pages:

Acle www.peoplesfundraising.com/wall/st-edmunds-church-acle
Beighton         https://thy.ng/CUR006086
Reedham         https://thy.ng/CQR007661

Local foodbanks have been experiencing extra demand: thank you if you are able to continue to give food through the usual channels (e.g. Acle Co-op, Reedham Church).
