ABBEY CHURCH CHARITIES 2021
The Abbey Church PCC aims to support two main charities per year. Following their discussion, they decided that the Church will support CBM UK, the Overseas Disability Charity, which works towards building inclusive communities, saving sight, strengthening health systems and improving access to education and employment opportunities.
We shall also support the local based charity Solent Mind, a mental health charity which supports a variety of trusted mental health projects in our area and seeks to provide practical support that empowers people to move forward in life.
