Our Action for Children weekend raised £660 from Saturday's stall in Market Square, Sunday's cake and plant stall in the hall and the retiring collection plus gift aid.
During Action for Children's Sunday service led by our minister Helen, Madeleine Clarke, the charity's Community Fundraising Manager spoke about how the charity works and what it does. Local Buckinghamshire examples included the respite centre for youngsters with special needs at High Wycombe. She said that respite was often seen as for the parents. With Action for Children, it is also a very real respite for the children with a whole series of activities that they wouldn't normally have and which produces very gratifying results. Madeleine spoke of the importance of partnerships and in particular the long-standing partnership with the Methodist Church which went right back to its Methodist minister founder. She also spoke of the new 'Revolving Door' project gaining help for vulnerable youngsters by early intervention. Her talk helped us to see where our money went in helping Action for Children to 'do what's right, what's needed and what works for disadvantaged children across the UK'.
