Luke Gratton, Head of Partnerships (Midlands, Wales & Ireland) for Compassion UK delivers a message to the people of the Parish of Kidderminster East during the Coronavirus outbreak.
As well as checking out the work of Compassion via their website https://www.compassionuk.org/ , there is a Child Sponsorship Scheme within the Parish of Kidderminster East, which supports 10 children, and their families / projects, around the world via Compassion UK. Donations of varying amounts from £1 to £25 per month are made by donors across the parish, as well as ad hoc donations, towards the £28 per month sponsorship per child. There is also a team of letter writers who correspond with the 10 children.
If you would like more details about contributing financially or writing letters, please contact Karen Morton at the Parish Office on 01562 822131 (please leave a message and she will call back) or email: email@example.com
Finally, having managed the Parish Compassion (previously Tearfund) Sponsorship Scheme for 20 years and, latterly, not having been able to give it the focus it deserves, the time has come for Karen to hand this work over to a new Co-ordinator. If you think you would be interested in co-ordinating the contact with our Compassion children and managing the financial contributions, or would like more information, please also contact Karen on the phone number / email address above. It is a very rewarding task so please do give it your best consideration. Thank you.
