AMC Action for Children child 2

The collections over Christmas for Action for Children this year, raised £714. There was £115.50 from the Christingle Service and £599.12 from the Christmas Day service. Thanks have been expressed to all who contributed. What Action for Children do, is summarised in this piece from the charity's website:

"When Methodist minister Thomas Bowman Stephenson saw children living rough under the arches of Waterloo station in London, he decided he had to act. And his first action was to listen.He paid children the respect of hearing their stories, before working out the most practical way to help.
A century and a half later, the spirit of our founder remains our inspiration. We take action on behalf of 301,000 children, young people, parents and carers across the UK. Our mission is to do what's right, do what's needed, and do what works for children."
