Sponsored Children With Plan International
Four children, one each from the Dominican Republic, Togo, Columbia and Bangladesh are sponsored through Plan International. Regular updates are received from the charity. Four church members correspond with the children.
We were very pleased to welcome some new sponsors in 2020 but would still welcome a few more. The annual donation is £15 per child. If interested please contact Judy Seymour.

Terms of Reference ratified by the PCC (1992): An independent memorandum account would be opened and proceeds could be included in the 10% church charity allocation should this be necessary. Monies raised would not be lost in the general church fund and not be included in the monies used in the assessment of the Quota.
