Please come. along and join us. 

Donations of money will go to the Bishop of Blackburn's Harvest appeal, leaflets will be handed out in church with a slip to complete for any donation. 

Donations of tinned goods, dried food stuff or toiletries will be given to the Clitheroe Food Bank. 

The two charities chosen by Bishop Julian for this appeal are:

Breaking the Barriers: This initiative will be the major beneficiary of the 2019 Appeal. Through training and sustainable energy business opportunities, women are being empowered to take control of their future.

The programme operates in four countries where those with the least power and influence (women in particular) are most vulnerable to the impact of climate change; Ethiopia, Malawi, Burkina Faso and Honduras.

In an unequal society like Honduras, women are less likely to be involved in community decision-making and are therefore less able to lift themselves out of poverty.

Climate change is also exacerbating these challenges; the seasons are less predictable and traditional farming methods cannot be relied-upon. But training, access to loans and new technologies, such as solar driers for crops, are giving Honduran women a voice.

Friends of Mulanje Orphans (FOMO) is a Lancashire-based charity started by a group in Hoole/New Longton in 2000, with a heart for the vulnerable children of Malawi. From small beginnings in 2000, FOMO has grown and now looks after many thousands of children through a network of 14 centres covering over 90 villages in Mulanje district.

FOMO centres aim to meet basic human needs and develop the potential of all the vulnerable and orphaned children of Mulanje. They do this by providing healthcare, education and food. Vegetables are grown at the centres, and all children attending receive one meal a day – that’s over 1.2 million meals a year!

Back in March, Malawi was struck by Cyclone Idai, one of the worst tropical storms to ever affect southern Africa. In the immediate aftermath of the cyclone, FOMO were on-hand to offer help by supplying emergency food, blankets and clothing directly to affected families. There is so much more to be done to provide a secure future for the vulnerable young people of Mulanje, please donate to support this vital work.
