A message from your Charity Officer

While we all have been in Lock-down, we as a Fellowship have been trying to continue to help the needy—although it has not been possible to ask the agreement of all the Fellowship members in these unusual times, I do hope that you will approve of the donations that we have discussed and approved in Committee by email.

I am always looking for causes to support or help on behalf of the Fellowship. If anyone is aware of any need, please let me know.

Keep safe and well.
Stuart Badman, Charity Officer

The Franciscan Hospice and Refuge

January 2021

We have donated €500, as they are in desperate need of funds as due to the lock-down their normal donations from the Charity Shop and Library in Javea are closed and unable to raise funds to support them.

The Refuge provides residential care and nursing care for around 50 homeless and ill men who have no other means of support. They receive no State Aid or any Official help so the Brothers rely totally on Charity and Providence. At the moment they are desperate for food, cleaning and personal hygiene products such as toilet paper and shower gel, I do hope that you will agree that these were worthwhile causes to support.
