1/ St Faustina Community Health Centre in Uganda.  Our churches have supported the Centre for several years now. providing much needed equipment for the Centre and for projects to help school children & groups in the community. Our J&P Group have liaised with Fr Sylvester, Head of the Centre, and responded to their requests for help by organising collections and transportation of goods which our parishioners have so generously donated, and which has been of great help in enabling the Centre to meet the needs of the local community.

There’s a display of photos received from Fr Sylvester showing how our support has been put to such good use. You can view the display in the Mary Chapel at the car park end of St. Mary’s church, and in Holy Family church.

If you would like to contribute to the work of St Faustina on a regular basis, or with a one-off donation, please go to their website:

If food waste were a country, it would be the world’s third largest emitter after China and the USA.
