The Church has agreed to pro-actively support the following charities – each of which has its own page on our web-site:

- Broomfields Youth Project.
- CARE UK. This is a Warrington based charity that has three main areas of work. They send containers full of clothes, medical aid, food and sanitary items to the refugee camps in Lesbos, Cyprus and Turkey. They help to re-home and settle refugee families coming to this country. They work with local families and individuals being rehoused after domestic violence, homelessness and eviction having been referred by Social Services or Room at the Inn. This can involve everything a flat needs to just a few items. In order for them to help all these people they need donations of good quality clothing, furniture and kitchen items as well as money. They have 2 charity shops- one in the Cockhedge Shopping centre opposite Asda and one in Northwich on Chesterway ( the former Co-op supermarket). It is here that all donations are sorted and shipped into containers – they need volunteers to help with this.
- All We Can – Methodist Relief and Development Fund.
