“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40
There is an amazing opportunity to support people in Chesham & surrounds in a practical way – made possible through our partnership with Acts 435, a national online charity that puts local donors in touch with people in need in their town. Acts 435 enables us to post online requests for donations that will fund specific items, helping people in difficult circumstances to move away from the brink of crisis and cope again. It’s a bit like crowd-funding and 100% of donor funds go to people in need.
An advocate connects those in need to those who want to help, protecting anonymity and confidentiality. It gives donors an opportunity to provide practical, direct help for specific items in a simple way, with no admin or overhead costs.
If you would like to DONATE, please go to acts435.org.uk, or if you would like to donate specifically to the TKCC hardship fund in view of the current environment, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the church bank details.
If you would like to APPLY FOR FUNDING through Acts 435, please contact our advocate John Jenkins on 07521 017905.
If however you have a very urgent request as a result of the current environment, please call Tracey Fenner on 07940 411628.
Examples of what’s been achieved by Acts435:
> Mood lamp for little boy with ADHD – now sleeps through the night
> Tent, camping stove and bicycle to support homeless bricklayer
> Cost of covering DBS safeguarding certificate for a woman who needed it for a job
John and helpers also have a stall to raise funds for Acts435 and people in need every Saturday morning market on the High Street. Everything is available for a donation, with nothing priced. Be sure to visit!
