HOW YOU CAN HELP
The Bristol Churches City Fund (partnering with Bristol Noise and Christian Action Bristol) is raising funds for what is becoming a critical need across the city.
The URGENT task is to raise funds to support the effort to get food to where it is most urgently needed.
So, we are asking for an outpouring of generosity from Christians and churches across the city to contribute to this Fund.
The Fund will channel much-needed finance to purchase additional food supplies, including those items that are not easy to source elsewhere at the moment.
Every donation will be directed to providing food to food banks across the city, and will make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of families.
1. Make a donation online by visiting www.churchescityfund.org/donate
2. You can also donate by texting 70460. To donate £2 text ‘CITYFUNDFOOD 2', £5 text 'CITYFUNDFOOD 5', £10 text 'CITYFUNDFOOD 10’. Texts cost the donation amount plus one standard rate message.
3. Share the Bristol Churches City Fund with friends and family, communities and churches, etc. Help spread the word and encourage others to join in supporting the food crisis in our city. Read more
Could you use your home for good?
Each year in the UK, tens of thousands of children and young people come into care, usually from difficult or desperate circumstances. Children may have suffered a lack of care or stability, abuse or neglect, or their family may be going through crisis. All have experienced trauma and separation, even those who come into care at birth.
Fostering is an opportunity to give vulnerable children and young people a safe place in a stable and loving home while their own family is unable to look after them. Some may need a home for a few nights, others for a few months or years, and some will need to be looked after throughout their childhood. All will need care, compassion and support.
