Sacred Hearts supports local and UK charities and many good causes internationally. We contribute to charities, special appeals (e.g. natural disasters, wars/conflicts), local outreach programmes, overseas missions and other worthy causes through second collections at Mass. We raise funds and build awareness for charities and non-profits through quiz nights, cakes sales and other events. Several parish groups like the Hall and Bar Committees raise charitable funds through their yearly operations and activities.
We are a giving parish, not only with funds but with our time, effort and prayers. This is no more apparent than during our summer fete, which, through happy and willing volunteers, has provided significant donations to a number of charities including the COBALT Foundation, Winston’s Wish, Open Door, Gloucestershire Air Ambulance, MacMillan Trust, Nazareth House, Sue Ryder among others. We would particularly like to thank local businesses and organisations who support the fete each year so generously for the betterment of those in need.
We also contributed regularly to:
