Like most Charities we have had a serious drop in our income. As churches families and individuals try to adapt, we know many are wondering about their own financial future but can you help us help the most desperate?

“Lockdown Letters” were originally written as weekly pieces, sent to friends and acquaintances during the first five months of the national lockdown, following the spread of the global COVID19 virus in March 2020. Personal reflections on the positive and negative effects of the lockdown, the letters are a kind of commentary on this strange time which has the potential to change our lives, society and the world, for years to come.

Price £6.50. Profits from sales of ‘Lockdown Letters’ will be equally divided between Medical Aid for Palestinians and The Fund for Human Need, a small, effective Methodist charity. Copies can be obtained from Warren at or 01543 255292. There will be a small discount on orders of five copies or more.

The fund has a 60 year history of helping destitute people in the UK at often the lowest points in their lives. We were planning some great fundraising celebrations, but due to Covid19 restrictions we have to raise these much needed funds in other ways, can you help.

COVID-19 has had a catastrophic effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income. Captain Tom stepped up to help and completed his now-famous walk to support the NHS, inspiring millions of people to donate.

The Captain Tom 100 is offering everyone the chance to take on their own challenge, and to raise funds for the charity of their choice, this page links your 100 to us:
