Mission & Giving

Group Charity
Currently across The Fosse Group we are considering the possibility of backing one particular charity for some period of time. This would give a clear focus for charitable giving for the Group and help to bring together our parishes in fellowship and as a community of faith. Your thoughts on this and suggestions as to one worthy charity would be very gratefully received. Ideas suggested to date include;

– Charities concerning dementia
– Operation Smile Project (for children with a cleft palate)
– Local charities such as Newark Emmaus Trust
– The Salvation Army or the Red Cross
– Charities relating to one of the places overseas with which our own diocese already has links: Burundi, Natal, The Holy Land…

Please do send an email with your thoughts to: thefossegroup@hotmail.co.uk or call 01949 20218.
